I consider Plants of the Pacific Northwest Coast to be a must-have for anyone who wants to know more about this area, as well as a great educational tool for kids. A handy field-guide, it will give the observer a fast way to look up and identify plants, shrubs, trees, mosses, ferns, lichens, and grasses. --The New Times, Seattle

If you're moving toward landscaping with native plants this is the book you need. Take it with you on a hike. I will never look at weeds the same way again.
The pictures in this book are great, most of them focus not only on the flowers but the foliage as well, which makes it easier to identify plants when they aren't in bloom. The photos are in color and have multiple angles in many cases. While the book mainly focuses on herbaceous flowering plants, there are sections for trees, shrubs, ferns, aquatics, and other oddball plants.
I would highly suggest this book for people looking to expand their knowledge on local plants, as this not only includes the photo and scientific/common names, but a general information section about each plant. It lets the reader know if the plant is poisonous (and how poisonous), if it's rare/protected, invasive, etc. The waterproof cover makes it great for students studying in the field, and the brief introduction has valuable and interesting information.
Also - some of the commentary is laugh out loud funny! Have given several copies to friends appreciative of Botanical Delights and of Authors with a fine sense of humor AND impeccable knowledge.

I first fell in love with this field guide in high school during environmental science class. It has accompanied me on many excursions and morning hikes.
To date, it is the only thing I've ordered from Amazon that made me giddy when I received it. It's that good.
