Uncommon Beauty explores the wildflowers and flowering shrubs of a large area including Jasper down to Cranston, over to Glacier National Park in Montana, and up to Lethbridge and Edmonton. Extensively researched by author and outdoors enthusiast Neil L. Jennings, this guide will inform and intrigue the reader, while also assisting with plant identification and recognition. Exceptional photographs of over 200 species of flowering plants, plus information about each plant, make Uncommon Beauty the ideal field guide for hikers (and amblers) of all skill levels. For ease of reference, the book is arranged by flower colour and by plant family. A complete index is included, using common and scientific names for all plants. One final cautionary note--the pursuit of wildflowers can be addictive, though not hazardous to your health.
