Kudos to the Timber Press publishing team for all the efforts in bringing out such useful, informative books with real pictures and updated information related to nature and most recently on the wildflowers in this upcoming production.

I am amazed and awestruck with the information provided in the contents. The chapters are well planned and presented as precisely as possible which I really appreciate. The presentation is so well done alongwith the related pictures and descriptions.

You will gain a lot of new information and you will definitely like you are travelling while you're reading this book.

Chef's kiss! Will definitely worth your time and money.

Thank you, Timber Press, for the advance review copy.

Thank you NetGalley, the authors and the publisher, for the opportunity to read and give an honest review of this book.

What an amazing, fact and photo-filled guide to wildflowers in the midwest!
This book begins with a botany lesson on flower categories and groupings as well as flower parts.

Then, it moves into hundred of useful photos grouped by color. There is a description of each wildflower and where it can be located. It was amazing to see that a lot of my favorite garden perennials can also be considered to be ‘wildflowers’ of the midwest.

This book is a treasure. It would be useful to a gardener as well as someone that just enjoys hiking and exploring the area they live in.

This book begins with a great overview of the landscape of the Midwest Region of the USA.
With easy to distinguish descriptions and photographs to identify the native grasses and botany of this area.
Wonder book and a great recommendation to those who live and travel in the heart of America.

One-of-a-kind Field Guide

If you live in (or frequent) Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri or Iowa and have ever looked at a wildflower and wondered: 'What in tarnation is that?' Then good news! You can look no further; this book is for you.

With clear and stunning photographs 1,000 of the most common midwestern wildflowers are featured within this generous tome.

Generally speaking, each page is quartered to provide images and ample description for identifying each so you don't have to squint to find what you are looking for. Even better, the chapters are organized by flower color and species for maximum efficiency.

Instead of wondering what you've found and trying to locate it by a name that you may or may not find yourself remembering correctly, you can quickly navigate to your flower (and similar). There you'll find genus, common names, identifying features, and areas where the plant is generally located- complete with bonus fun facts if space allows! This book is remarkably well-researched. My only suggestion would be including some sort of color-coded or quick reference guide in future editions to identify potentially poisonous plants. Some note that they are, but many more do not.

I was amazed not only by how many species I recognized from the field, but also by how many I had been (confidently) misidentifying my entire life! Complete with ruler on the back cover for scale, identifying midwestern plant life has never been easier. At $30 this guide is a steal for anyone who enjoys spending the warmer months outdoors.

Now if Michael and Scott could do the same for midwestern wild mushrooms, you would never be able to get me back indoors!

[Thank you to NetGalley and Timber Press for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.]
