This is a valuable resource for the naturalist as well as the wildflower enthusiast which describes 600 wildflowers found in Arkansas. Color photographs are provided for 484 flowers. Plants are arranged by family; this may seem awkward at first, but the book is well indexed. A glossary, state map showing regions, and diagrams of plant parts are other helpful tools provided in the book. This book is a must for me while hiking or driving the highways and backroads of my state. The only way Hunter could have improved this resource, is by providing a color guide for quicker idntification.

This is the best book for identifying wildflowers that I have ever used. It works!! The blossom pictures are clear and make matching my finds to the pictures certain. My old copy was damaged. Since I was getting a new edition, I took the old copy to work. My coworkers liked it as much as I do. Several are buying their own copies for home use. This book is terrific!

I take Mr. Hunter's book with me on hiking trips because there is ALWAYS a flower or tree that I need to know the name. This is an excellent guide for flowers. The clear, crisp photos show you what no illustration can. The detailed descriptions leave no doubt. It has become a goal of mine to photograph each new one that I encounter. If it hadn't been for "Wildflowers of Arkansas" I would have never been able to ID most of them.

As a footnote, if traveling near a statepark in Arkansas, go to their giftshop/bookstore and pick up your own copy--- for the list price. You can still find them and you'll save a few bucks. And while you're there pick up one more of his invaluable resources such as "Trees, Shrubs and Vines of Arkansas".

I never leave home without them...

I have not found a wild flower that I can not identify using this book. I highly recommend this to anyone that wants to know what that pretty flower by the road is

This is the most complete work that I have found for Arkansas wildflowers. A truly necessary guide for anyone interested in observing and identifying wildflowers in the natural state.

This is a thoughtfully done book. The photographs are excellent but I found it to be too academic for those who are interested in quick flower identification. I admire the fact that the procedes are designated for a worthwhile cause as the Ozark Society.

This is my second copy of Wildflowers of Arkansas. I have a signed earlier edition and have almost worn it out on my wildflower excursions so I jumped at the chance to get this one. I live in Northeast Texas, but the native plants include many of those in eastern Arkansas This is my "go to" book when I'm trying to identify a new plant I've found..

I had been told several times this was the best book to identify Arkansas wild flowers. However the quality of some of the pictures is disappointing. A few are poor enough identification is uncertain. However, I have no complaint about the service or speed with which my order was filled.

Organized by family with color photos of the flowers. I would have liked color plates of the foliage as well to assist in identification when the plants are not flowering, but it is a handy little book.

Beautifully outlined, detailed and photographed. Many of the beautiful flowers we cultivate today have been here since colonization from Europe.
