    Love field guides. Being outside and enjoying the challenge of identifying something in nature, in this case wildflowers.

    I took this book with to a class in Grand Marais, it was very well organized and useful.

    This book isn't bad, however I feel Newcomb's Wildflower Guide covers the same information but does so with better illustrations, text and higher quality construction. If I didn't own Newcomb's I might have rated this book a 4, but I can't give it the same mark because it simply lacks what Newcomb's offers. Interestingly, my copy actually feels (and looks) cheaper than the rest of my Peterson guides. My copy is still in near new condition because I don't use it with so many better options out the This book isn't bad, however I feel Newcomb's Wildflower Guide covers the same information but does so with better illustrations, text and higher quality construction.

    I have an older version also. I think this book is excellent for identifying wildflowers but I wish they would do away with the drawings and replace them by pictures. Would also liked to have more information for each particular flower; I know that some are poisonous but this guide fails to mention. Also would have liked to have some info as to whether or not the flowers contain any medicinal properties or have edible parts, such as ground dried chicory roots that can be used as a delicious alte I have an older version also.

Overall an excellent field guide.

    I loved carrying this book with me everywhere I went this summer. I would pick plants, try to figure out which one was what then dry them in between the proper pages for fun. It was nice to flip through it with dried flowers that kept falling out of the book and staining the pages. Nice pictures and quick overview of the plants.

    This is a farily extensive introduction to the wildflowers of the Northeastern & central United States. The descriptions, illustrations and characteristic indicator arrows typical of the Peterson guides are very useful. I have used this guide frequently while on business trips to North Carolina, the southern limit of its range.

    my least favorite of the peterson guides that i've used. great illustrations and descriptions but the plants are arranged based on the color of the flower, which makes identification rather difficult outside the blooming season if you don't know at least the family the plant belongs to.

    Not as good as Peter White's Wildflowers of the Smokies for identification of wildflowers within the Appalachian Mountain Range; of course, Peterson's book is for a larger geographical area than White's.

    I love these kinds of books, even though I have a hard time doing the identification. I like having the books to try to do so.

    I own an earlier edition; Peterson Field guides are always useful. I like to combine their drawings with a guide that has photographs for ultimate identification.

    Fantastic reference. I bring it camping and consult it whenever I want to type out a plant. Love it.

    The color plates are helpful, the black and white plates not so much. However I do use this guide all the time.
