About this book

What started out as a visit to a bog near Erie, Pennsylvania, to search for the arethusa orchid, rare and in danger of extinction, ended up a quarter of a century later as thirty magazine articles concerned with the importance of saving our native plants by saving their habitats.

Seventeen articles on Ohio and neighboring states, including Ontario, Canada, make up the contents of the present book, spanning the years 1975 to 2004.
