About this book

Many visitors to the Alps – be it walkers, climbers or tourists – spot curious flowers and take a mental note: 'must look that up when I get back'. Well, no longer. Carrying Alpine Flowers essentially means having every alpine flower in your back pocket, with all the interesting titbits and etymological insight needed to illuminate your path.

    By Clive 21 Aug 2014 Written for Paperback
    The flowers are divided into colours and yet the "Red Lily" appears in the section for yellow flowers. within those divisions, the flowers are listed in alphabetic order of their common names which results in similar species being separated. This hampers identification of similar species.
    The photographs can be distant views of a plant which does not help with identification.
    The range of plants is far from comprehensive. A recent trip to the Julian alps left us with many plant species which we could not identify.
    In summary, this book has helped with identifying a few plants but has left many unidentified.
