DESCRIPTION:

This guide is the perfect size for taking along on camping and hiking trips in the Rocky Mountains. The 270-plus wildflowers in the guide are grouped with color-coded page edges indicating sections of white, yellow, red and blue/purple flowers to help in quickly locating an unknown wildflower. Wildflowers were photographed from Rocky Mountain National Park to the Mosquito Range, and from Crested Butte to the southern San Juan National Forest Region. Information includes common, scientific and family names, a brief description, and each wildflower's habitat, life zone, and general flowering time. Research, identification, text and illustrations are by Linda Nagy with photographs and book design by her husband, multiple award winning author and photographer Bernie Nagy (check their author pages on .)

Flowers are grouped in the book by color with each bloom given a single page. But for nature enthusiasts who want to identify wildflowers throughout Colorado's Rocky Mountains, it s a must --Arlene Shovald, The Mountain Mail, Salida Colorado, March14, 2014Finally a useful wildflower pocket guide with clear pictures and simple to read descriptions we can carry along on our weekly summer hikes. Many of the illustrations contain insets which highlight the same flower in a closeup or lesser found color --Kathleen O'Brian, Park County Republican and Fairplay Flume. CO . Rather than reading like a check off list, Nagy wrote individual, descriptive narratives that include flower shapes, sizes, toxicity when present, color range and leaf shapes, or some notes on a flower's uses by Native Americans or early settlers. Congratulations, well done! -

Just Slightly Helpful Amazon Customer Bought this book to identify flowering plants on my Colorado property. The book is slightly helpful, but only if plants are in bloom as there are no specific photos of leaves and plant structure.. Amazon Customer said Five Stars. Great pictures.. "Great little pocket guide" according to Karen A. Saunders. This little pocket guide is a nice reference for when I go camping and hiking in the Colorado mountains. I love the size and the color coded page edges that indicate sections of white, yellow, red and blue/purple flowers. The photos, larger text size, 2nd photo inset
