“With its wide geographic scope, including parts of Canada and California, it is a single comprehensive volume to pack along when traveling throughout the Pacific Northwest. . . . After owning this book for only a few weeks, I’ve already broken in the binding, having read up on shrubs that are in bloom along the Wenatchee River. I can tell that my book will be a bit dog-eared before the snow flies!” —Wenatchee World
