I bought this book 3 years ago and totally love it.The plant info and the photographs are beautiful. A lot of the info comes from Natives and give the readers information on what the plants can be used for like remedies for toothaches etc. The photographs, over 1000 of them, are all done in colour and are absolutely beautiful. I would have paid 3 times the amount for this book. A must for the outdoorsman.

Great book! The size and weight of the book is a bit smaller than what I expected after reading other reviews. This fit with no problem on a recent backpacking trip and we were able to identify practically every plant we saw. Very useful and I'm glad I finally have a resource like this.

Ah yes -- this series is so great as to be basically incomparable. They're simple, easy to comprehend, and have not only factual, useful, but also interesting information about the plants included. And they do include enough plants to be quite useful, and categorized and descibed in such a way that both biologists and novices can make easy use of this book.
