A beautifully illustrated and practical guide to the alpine lichens... Worth the carry for climbers and hikers heading for the hills. - Irwin Brodo, Lichenologist at the Canadian Museum of Nature, and author of The Lichens of North America; "At last, a well-illustrated field guide to the alpine lichens of the Northeast, complete enough to cover the species most likely to be noticed, but lightweight enough to justify lugging up the mountain... I could really have used a book like this 40 years ago when I was tramping around the White Mountains of New Hampshire every weekend, wondering what all those things were that were not vascular plants or mosses." - Jim Hinds, Lichenologist and Alpine Zone Ecologist, Orono, Maine; "This field guide is a remarkable, beautifully illustrated addition to the growing body of popular lichen books." - Scott LaGreca, Lichen Curator, London Museum of Natural History"
