"Eighty-five of the most beautiful photographs imaginable . . . The entire book is a visual delight."
"Anyone who is a collector of books that feature nature photography will certainly want to add this one to their collection. This is definitely one for the coffee tables of botanical types. The preface introduces the authors’ odyssey into their wildflower forays. It is well written, and I found myself wanting to meet the authors and go along with them on their searches. They make a great case for educating the public on natural plant communities, and their book provides a good starting point for the amateur wanting to learn a bit more about flowering plants and the ecosystems in which they reside."
Each photo is accompanied by a concise caption that provides common and scientific names, place and season photographed, and information on whether the plant is a Georgia protected plant. Armchair naturalists will not have to leave the comfort of their homes to appreciate this photographic collection of many of the state's wildflowers, but readers inspired to undertake their own search for these beauties will find suggestions for hiking trails and other sites to view wildflowers. Anyone who loves Georgia will treasure this book, and wildflower lovers everywhere will appreciate this beautiful depiction of the state's botanical diversity.
