This book is written for those who want to feel more at home in the natural world and recognize the necessity of knowing one's wild neighbor's names as well as their good and bad habits. Vines and vine-like plants are introduced by families with information on unique or unusual characteristics, folklore, uses and potential harmful effects, if any. Tips on identifying individual species are listed in the sections on leaves, flowers, and fruits, as well as the habitats in which they may be expected to be found growing. All esoteric scientific Botanese terms are translated into common everyday English words. Any confusion in interpreting my text may be readily dissipated upon viewing Joe Macgown's superb illustrations.
