"It's great to see this old friend of a book out in a fresh, expanded edition, because the copy I have is getting ragged. . . . Along with this spiffy new book comes information about 100 additional species of wildflowers . . . and lots of charts that help tell the story of our amazing palette of wild flowers."--Charlotte Observer
