About this book

Wildflower lovers across Georgia know Hugh and Carol Nourse through their popular slide lectures. Countless other enthusiasts have seen their glorious wildflower photographs in books and magazines. Here the Nourses draw on years of travel around the state to share their favorite places for seeing wildflowers. Of the many walks the Nourses have taken, these are the ones they return to most often because of the density or the unusual nature of the floral display. All twenty of these wildflower walks are on public land; everything you need to know about how to find them and what to do once you're there is included.

Five walks are presented from each of Georgia's four geographic regions: Cumberland Plateau/Ridge and Valley (northwestern Georgia); Blue Ridge (northeastern Georgia); Piedmont (Georgia foothills and fall line); and Coastal Plain (all of Georgia below the fall line). For each walk, a scenic photo gives a hint of the locale's overall character. In addition, five of the wildflowers encountered on the walk are profiled with a photograph and a detailed description. All of the wildflowers on these walks are native to Georgia. A few are rare and endangered. Common plant names are used in the main text; the index lists both common and scientific names.

Coverage of each walk includes directions and a trail map plus information about:
- flowering season
- peak flowering period
- flower habitats
- walk length and difficulty
- restroom availability
- applicable fees

"Well, Hugh and Carol Nourse have done it again! They have another hit on their hands . . . especially important and useful to novices who are just becoming interested in wildflowers. . . . Every photograph is an absolutely stunning professional image that shows all the important characteristics of the plant of scene being shown. The book is highly recommended, and should be a part of everyone's wildflower book collection."
 - Tipularia: The Journal of the Georgia Botanical Society

"A comprehensible, interesting and user-friendly experience for anyone beginning a study of wildflowers in their natural habitats . . . The text is conversational and friendly with interesting facts that genuinely serve to embellish the experience."
