We rated this book:


Yosemite National Park is one of the most beautiful places on the planet. Besides having spectacular waterfalls and cliffs, it is filled with wildlife and amazing plant-life. For those who love wildflowers—and really, who doesn’t?—this book will be a real treasure. It includes native and non-native plants as well as trees and shrubs that have conspicuous flowers. After a good introduction and a how-to-use section, the main part of the book is broken into six sections arranged by colors: white to cream; yellow; red and orange; pink, rose, and magenta; blue, purple, and lavender; and green and brown flowers. The tops of the pages are colored to make finding the sections easy. There are two flowers on each page with a gorgeous close-up photo, common name, scientific name and family, description flowering time, habitat/range, and comments and/or similar plants. Back-matter includes an excellent glossary, a family index, and a general index. There is even a handy little ruler on the back cover. For those who appreciate wildflowers and those who enjoy visiting Yosemite, this book will be an invaluable guide.
