Description

Two of Canada's most respected nature writers have collaborated once again to produce an outstanding field guide to the plants that grow at high elevation, above the tree line, in the mountains systems of British Columbia and elsewhere in the Western Cordillera. The book features more than 500 plants found in the alpine regions of western North America. Mackinnon's and Pojar's rich and engaging notes on each species include descriptions of the unique characteristics of each plant, as well as of its habitat and range. The book features full-colour photographs throughout. Whether one is a professional botanist, a mountain guide, an amateur naturalist or simply an outdoor enthusiast who loves to brave the high country, all will find this book of immense value. Among other virtues, it will help to enhance the reader's appreciation of the fragility and vitality of this unique group of plants, and to realize the need for care and responsibility when navigating alpine meadows and mountain slopes.
