Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Covering the vast region from Alaska to California and east to the Great Plains, this well-produced, compact guidebook contains color plates depicting more than 650 wildflower species grouped by flower color to suit the needs of inexperienced enthusiasts. The plates are keyed to texts that offer physical descriptions of the flowers and their leaves and, where applicable, fruit, along with notes on habitat and range and, often, further notes on the flower's name (e.g., "The common name, Clammyweed, refers to the sticky, moist glands on the surface of this plant"). Expertly written and photographed, this guide is just the book to have on hand when traversing western wildflower country. --Gregory McNamee --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

WESTERN REGION

This fully revised edition brings a new level of beauty, accuracy, and usefulness to the field guide that wildflower enthusiasts have relied upon for more than 20 years.

More than 940 all-new, full-color images show the wildflowers of western North America close-up and in their natural habitats. The guide has been completely revised to make identification in the field easier than ever. Images are grouped by flower color and shape and keyed to clear, concise descriptions that reflect current taxonomy.

I take this (as well as the Peterson Field Guide to Pacific States Wildflowers) with me on all my wildflower hunting trips. The extensive color photos are extremely helpful for identifying wildflowers. Flowers are organized by color. This has by far more real flower pictures than the Peterson Field Guide.

"What kind of wildflower is this, Dad?"
"I don't know?"
"Is it poisonous?"
"I don't know."
"It's sure pretty."
"Yes, it is pretty."
The above was always my reply to my children's questions about the wildflowers we saw whenever we took our family journeys into the Great Basin Desert, or high into the Pahvant Mountains. I got tired of saying, "I don't know." Well, because of the "National Audubon Society's Field Guide to Wildflowers" (Wester Edition) I know now, to tell my children to stay away from the (poisonous) Water Hemlock which I always thought previously was wild carrots. Now I can answer their question and impress them with my knowledge at the same time.
I would like to suggest this field guide to any of you family outdoor enthusiasts, especially fathers, so you don't get caught in the I don't know syndrome. The same applies for all the birds you see on your excursions--"What kind of bird is that, Dad?"--sound familiar? Well don't fret, you can click on my name, in this review, and find a field guide to Birds. Then you'll be doubly prepared.
Good luck,
from a father like you.

All of Audobon's books are great because they will fit in a pocket or day-pack. Nicely organized and includes awesome full color pictures that really help in the identification. The information on the flowers is very extensive. A must for anyone who likes flowers and wants to know what kind they have.

Format: Vinyl Bound
The book is well organized, comprehensive, and fairly easy to use. Flowers are organized by color, like the Audubon bird books. The only problem I find is that the pictures of foliage are not always clear because the focus is on the flowers. Unfortunately, most wildflowers have a fairly brief period of bloom. The difficulty of identifying a plant by foliage limits the usefulness of the book slightly.

This relatively small, plastic-covered guide is a gem - easy to use and far more comprehensive than any of the dozen region specific books I own. It contains 660 flower pictures; the photographic technique and printing quality are excellent. Wildflowers are grouped first by blosson color and then by one of five basic blossom styles. The system makes quick work of identifying new plants. Cross reference numbers link to a second section which has descriptions sorted by botanical family. It's the most useful guide I've come across.

We live in Arizona so we chose the guide for the Western Region. However, on a recent trip to the Mogollon Rim the guide didn't have 5 out of the 7 flowers we found. We liked the layout but it just didn't give us enough flowers. That makes it a waste of our money. Very disappointing.

I bought this as a second copy to keep in our trailer along with other Audubon guides that I also own. Buying them used made the cost minimal. I like the Audubon guides more than other guides because of the pictures instead of drawings and the vinyl covering. I have bought several Audubon guides from several used sources and was stunned to get a couple of them that looked like they have never been used and they all showed withing four days..
