Lewis Clark s Field Guide to Wild Flowers of the Sea Coast in the Pacific Northwest Book Description:

Following publication of his encyclopedic classic, Wild Flowers of the Pacific Northwest, the late Lewis Clark broke his massive masterwork down into six compact and affordable field guides organized by habitat.

Wild Flowers of the Sea Coast offers descriptions, diagrams and surprisingly large colour photos of almost 100 flowering plants of the coastal region stretching from northern California to southern Alaska. Combining scholarly rigour with a conversational prose style, this easy-to-use guide will appeal to experienced botanists and afternoon strollers alike.
