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.

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.

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.

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.

This guide is easy to use. Flowering plants are grouped by the color of the flower, and within the color, by the form of the flower. Good range maps, and good description. I would have liked more views of the entire plant, not just the flower. Otherwise excellent for botanizing, which I do full bore in our short spring and summer seasons.

Most helpful identification book I have to date. The glossary explains how to identify plants and flowers by their petal arrangement as well as stalk and leaf placement. Awesome buy!

As with all the Audubon Field Guides, so too with this one. The color plates are the best in the "field" of all the field guides; these photos are indispensible for any one who needs to identify any of the more than 650 species of western wildflowers.

The durable leatherette cover, as well as the heavy duty (turtleback) book binding, make this a book that can easily withstand much wear and tear.

The descriptive information is good; where the text starts to show deficiencies is in the Range, Habitat, and Comments sections of each species. The information tends to be vague and merely glosses over critical facts that should be included. I can only assume that it's the usual story of the editors not having the space to include more relevant information.

The index is cross referenced to the color plates; this is a big plus when out in the field attempting to do identifications. As far as a good tool to increase one's knowledge of the natural world, this field guide is helpful and deserves a place in any naturalist's library.
