Reviews

"I can't remember a book making me so eager for spring. Others may have given me the feel of that swift, sweet season, but none has given me so much to do when it arrives... The book's layout and typography are simple and elegant, and its photos are beautiful — many of them exceedingly so... [Wildflowers of the Adirondacks] also has an intangible quality I don't get from many other guidebooks: Somehow it motivates me to get out and use it."
