About the Author
Ronald J. Taylor is a retired professor of botany and plant ecology at Western Washington University. A field trip to the Great Basin and Mojave Deserts as an undergraduate sparked his interest in desert plants, and his research and teaching provided him with many opportunities to study and photograph the plants of the desert. The author of numerous scientific and popular articles and books, Taylor has written four titles for Mountain Press.

The wildflowers are arranged by families, NOT by color. This can be problematic for amateur botanists like me who are familiar with only a few families. Each wildflower has a photo which is of good quality and most are close-up shots. The text with each flower describes GENERAL time of blooming, locations, and some interesting facts.
My on-the-field experience was mixed. The photos were clear, but I found myself having to go through each page to match the wildflower, since I'm not familiar with the different families. I finally gave up, took a picture (which I do anyway for documentation purposes) so I can figure it out later. It's a decent guide, but for amateurs like me, it was not user-friendly.
This book is absolutely wonderful. It is chockfull of amazing photographs and detailed explanations of the various flowers around the coulees which adorn our gorgeous side of the state. Likely I shouldn't say much lest the crowds begin to show up and do what crowds do best - trash places.
