Mountain Blooms: Wildflowers of the Rockies
Reminiscent of nineteenth-century botanical prints, the full-color illustrations in these small nature guides are miniature watercolors, as delightful to look at as they are accurate. Beneath each illustration the reader will find the popular and scientific names, size, range, and a concise description of the habitat or an interesting bit of lore. Ideal for the backpacker or dayhiker, the books fit handily in the pocket.
Mountain Blooms is a complete overhaul of Kinnikinnick, the sweet little book that launched the much-loved Pocket Nature Guide series more than twenty-five years ago. As the Rocky Mountain West becomes an increasingly popular place to live and vacation, these books will only become more in demand.
