He is currently vice president of the Tennessee Native Plants Society and also a member of the Scientific Advisory Committee for Rare Plants in Tennessee. For over 40 years, Dennis has traveled from the Mississippi River to the Blue Ridge Mountains studying and photographing Tennessee wildflowers.

An interpretive naturalist and writer, Tavia Cathcart brings extensive knowledge of ethnobotany, folklore, and mythology of plants to this book. A native of Middle Tennessee and an active member of the Tennessee Native Plants Society, her search for plants and their stories has taken her from the highest peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains to rarely visited coves in the Smoky Mountains. She has run her own award-winning consulting and writing business, Cathcart Media, for nearly two decades, specializing in teaching and environmental projects. Her writings have been published in national and regional journals, anthologies, and conservation magazines.

There are several things that set this book apart from other field guides. The plasticized cover, heavy stock paper, and page size make for an excellent and robust field guide. The quick color guide in the front makes short work of identification. The photos are taken from the aspect at which you would discover the plant, also helping with identification. Descriptions are will written and complete.

But the thing I like most is the ethnobotanical aspect of the book. Each plant has a historical description of its role in human activity. Gaining an understanding of its use by different cultures over the ages is a real treat.

Don't let the price fool you, this book is well worth twice the price. If I am not mistaken, some of the proceeds go to the Tennessee Native Plant Society, so obviously compiling this book was a labor of love.

May all your weeds be wildflowers, enjoy!

I just finished 4 days of botanizing in the Smoky Mts and in Southwestern Virginia and I bought this book for the trip. It turned out to be very useful, and I agree with the comments of the other reviewer. I particularly appreciated the instructions on how to differentiate similar species. My one complaint is that many of the photos, while lovely, do not show leaves, let alone the entire plant. And the plant descriptions are sparse. This book is geared to flower, as opposed to plant, identification. To use it you usually need the full flower in front of you. Along with this book, we ended up carrying Newcomb's Wildflower Guide, and Core's Flora of West Virginia. Those books have drawings, now perhaps considered old fashioned, and certainly not as flashy as photos, but which provide SO much more information than photos.

If you need or want to correctly identify forbs and wild flowers in the state of Kentucky, Tennessee, and south IL, IN, OH, then this is the best resource you will find. I have been working for USDA in KY for 25 years now and I have a lot of experience with plant ID. If they said I could only take one book, this would be the one!

This book is THE BEST!! My absolute favorite wildflower book for the North Georgia Mountains... and I have tried MANY. I am a professional naturalist and lead wildflower hikes all spring. This book is my bible! I carry it everywhere I go. Easy to use, lots of species covered, wonderful ethnobotany information (great "stories" to use while leading hikes). Detailed enough to get the ID right, general enough for anyone to use. Wonderful wonderful wonderful wonderful book... (as are Lone Pine's other plant books covering other regions.) HIGHLY RECCOMMENDED!!

Wildflowers of Tennessee is easy to use when locating a particular flower. It also contains good descriptions which help to indentify each flower. The photography is clean and clear. I'd highly recommend this book if the Tennessee, Ohio Valley, and Southern Appalachians are areas you frequent.

Format: Paperback
I spend the bulk of my hiking time in the TN, VA region so I'm sure to get lots of use out of this field guide; especially with my children as we continue to introduce them to the wonders of nature. I was instantly struck with the quality of the book (plastic coated cover, brilliant photos, and well organized layout). It would be nice to have a botanist on hand as I hike to answer all my random questions. This book will certainly fill this niche. I had the pleasure of meeting Dennis Horn, one of the authors. Dennis explained how this book was assembled by volunteers for the Tennessee Native Plant Society, a non-profit group. Not only is this book a great reference for your outdoor collection, it also serves as an inspiration to offer your craft or skill towards a cause you're passionate about.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I take many photos of wildflowers on my hikes and even though I have several books, I find it difficult to match their pictures to my photos. You will not have that trouble with this book. Flowers are well organized into color groupings at the beginning of the book that refer to pages with detailed descriptions, pictures, habitat and season. A fantastic useful flower guide. I liked it so much I bought one for each of my sons and their families.

I purchased this book to augment my other wildflower field guides. The pictures are invaluable. My only reservation would be that only some species in a genus are shown. That implies the unshown species do not occur in the range covered by the book. That could be misleading.
