|Even with its
craggy peaks and dusty
plains, scorching sun and subzero termperatures, Wyoming's terrain and
climate are not nearly as diverse as its wildflowers. From the pink to
rosy purple moss campion that blankets the state's treeless tundra to
lavender-flowered fuzzy-tongued beardtongue found in roadside ditches
the plains, Wyoming wildflowers brighten the Cowboy State's rugged and
plant enthusiasts needed to lug several field guides to identify
multitude of flowering plants.
Now, thanks to Diantha and Jack States,
botanists, naturalists, and hikers can lighten their load and still
most of Wyoming's flowers with this useful and attractive book.
