These pocket books are great to carry with you on walks where you want to identify plants you see and like (or don't!)

This guide is perfect for basic flower id. The one con I have found is that the plant must actually have the flower on it in order to id it. This can be troublesome if you are trying to key out a plant in the forest that is past bloom or pre-bloom.

A great size to put in your day pack. I wish the print was larger. Very informative with a number of diagrams.

I'm very pleased with this book. The plants are organized by family, which is an excellent way to learn about plants.
