Attractive . . . The descriptions are brief but cover the basic size, shape, habitat, and time of flowering; quality and color reproduction of the photographs are uniformly very good. Although predominantly focused on native herbaceous plants, a number of trees and shrubs with showy flowers or fruit are included. Short discussions of Ozark geography, the dominant ecosystem types, and a chapter on how to identify wildflowers precede the illustrated description section. . . . Will be very useful for novice naturalists, visitors to the region, and as an illustrated supplement to more technical floristic treatments.(Choice)
Naturalists, botanists, and wildflower enthusiasts will welcome this useful guide as will patrons of public libraries in the region.(International Hawkwatcher)

As a flower guidebook, this would work very well. It is organized by flower color. When trying to identify a wildflower, the reader turns to the appropriate section then thumbs through the pictures until finding a picture of the flower or one very similar then referencing the description which is of the plant pictured and refers to similar species.
The pictures are good. The descriptions are adequate and understandable. They are both a bit small as so many are crammed into the book.
I would prefer to have the pictures split into more categories as it can take time to browse through so many while comparing the unknown plant to the pictures.
Great starting book, one opportunity the author has to improve next editions are to add sizes to the flower, be consistent with adding the leaf and stems of the plant.
OTHERWISE the book is well written and useful in identifying "most" everything around our place in Mt. View, Ar.
