Review quotes

Trees & Shrubs of the Pacific Northwest is a treasure. . . . this detailed guide draws you in closer to really look at, and identify, our wildly diverse flora.” —The Seattle Times

“A treasure. . . . This detailed guide draws you in closer to really look at, and identify, our wildly diverse flora.” —Pacific Northwest Magazine

“A must-have resource.” —Washington Trails 

“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
