Virginians are justifiably proud of the beauty of this part of our state and this book goes a long way towards illustrating just why this is so. The book covers 285 species of wildflowers in one of the most beautiful areas of the United States. - Virginia Wildlife "Perfect for both hikers and campers." - Roanoke Times and World News "This book is designed for those who have had no training in biology: the text is brief and succinct, the photographs are color-coded. It is small enough to carry in the field, attractive enough to leave out on a table as a ready reference." - Garden Club of Virginia "This lovely book on the wildflowers found in a very floriferous nine-county section of Virginia shows 285 species of wildflowers in beautiful color photographs. The large photographs and accompanying text make it possible to identify a good part of our native flora. The book is centered along a color system, which is not the most scientific, but is easy to work with. The book covers a unique part of the country, whose wildflower heritage dates back to colonial times. The area covered and the photos make it an excellent reference source." - Arboretum Leaves, The Holden Arboretum
