Roadside Plants and Flowers: A Traveler's Guide to the Midwest and Great Lakes Area: With a Few Familiar Off-Road Wildflowers
by Marian S. Edsall

Reviewer: Sandra Allen from A Wisconsin Master Gardner "For both the novice and the expert, this is a great book to have while traveling, walking in the woods or biking. Even in the classroom studying the native plants, this easy to read reference will add to the education of students. Referenced by color of flower, there are over 100's of photos of plants in their native habitate along with pictures of their leaves. There is more than just a botanical description. Whimsy folklore about the plants will enhance the readers enjoyment. Ever wonder why the forget-me-not got its name and why the Thistle is the national Scottish symbol? For a quick reference and review of native flowers you will be glad you got ROADSIDE PLANTS AND FLOWERS."

Reviewer: Evelyn Scott from southern Alabama "good photographs and information for fast identification of the familiar plants we see so often---and others not so familiar. The author includes interesting information about the specimens making it more interesting than the usual botanical guides. Very useful to an out-of-state traveler"
