5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Kevin Joyce on March 27 2004
Format: Paperback
This is the easiest-to-use and most thorough flower guide I've ever seen. Yes, most illustrations are black-and-white. It's an initial disappointment; however, the quick and sure five-step identification process is worth the lack of color (and the drawings are expertly done). It's much more complete than, say, the Audubon guide. Newcomb has yet to leave me stumped for the identity of any flowering plant. As has been noted, this guide is valid for the Northeast U.S., from Virginia-Kentucky up; and for Canada from Thunder Bay to Newfoundland. I wish the rest of you had a version -- it's indispensible.

Newcomb's guide is a great book, once you get past the initial training period. For those of us used to flipping through pictures of flowers and fruit until we think we have the right one, this book can be initially off-putting.
My advice...get used to it. Newcomb's system is more efficient and more certain than flower-flipping. A good book.

Format: Paperback
The author's system allows even amateurs like me to quickly and accurately identify wildflowers.
It is as simple as answering five questions which point the user to the appropriate page in the book where the flower is described and pictured. The text is great. The first sentence of each description distinguishes that plant from all others in that group.
If you are looking for a wildflower guide, they do not get better than this one.

Format: Paperback
I have talked to all my classmates in my Field Biology class and they think this book is terrific. It's actually a required handbook for that class. Instead of returning it to get my money back, I decided to keep it to use in my biology classroom when I become a teacher. This is an easy to use book that has great pictures. I carry it with me when I go on nature hikes. I have yet to find a plant that is not in this book! If my biology teachers can realize the value of this book enough to make it required material, I am sure you will love this book. Whether you are a serious biologist, student, or someone that loves nature, this is the book for you.

Haven't found anything comparable in the format of a field guide. Recommended for anyone trying to learn about native plants.

Went camping at Fort Ingall, QC and saw so many wildflowers we had never seen before. This guide identified them all for us. We would have been so frustrated without it. Want to give this guide a good run for your money? Head to Fort Ingall on Lac Temiscouata in mid July.

This is a great field guild for any one from beginner to intermediate identification skills. The drawings are fantastic and the guide in its entirety is well organised.
