About this book

Native orchid expert and author Paul Martin Brown continues his successful series on the wild orchids of North America with Wild Orchids of the Pacific Northwest and Canadian Rockies. Whether beginner or professional, curious orchid hunters will be able to locate the nearly 50 species to be found in a wide variety of this region's local habitat - from seashore to temperate rain forest to alpine meadow. Brown reveals the best spots to find the orchids he describes and offers expert advice on how to plan and execute an enjoyable (and environmentally responsible) outing. As with Brown's other guides, all information is presented in a simple, straightforward style and with ample illustration so that proper identification is a snap. Geographical coverage includes: Oregon, Washington, British Columbia, Alaska, Idaho, western Montana, and western Alberta; 10 detailed area treatments - The Siskyous; Columbia River, The Cascades, Olympic Peninsula, Vancouver Island, Glacier National Park, Cypress Hills, Kodiak Island, Downtown Anchorage, Denali National Park; and 47 species, 1 subspecies, 10 varieties, 5 hybrids, and 62 forms.

Obviously Brown knows his native orchids and clearly his objective is to offer them to us in a way that we will soon know them as well as he does. - James Fowler, author of The Wild Orchids of South Carolina"
