This unique reference work describes over 350 wildflowers and flowering shrubs that grow in New Mexico's Sangre de Cristo, Jemez, Sandia, and Manzano Mountains, as well as neighbouring ranges, including the Manzanita, San Pedro, Ortiz, and other lower-elevation mountains in central portions of the state.

With more than a thousand colour photographs accompanied by visual descriptions, the easy-to-use guide organizes plants first by flower colour, then alphabetically by family common name, then by scientific name. The authors also include information on traditional uses of the plants by indigenous peoples and an extensive glossary and bibliography.

A brief geological history and description of the ranges examines the different life zones and ecosystems and how these relate to elevation and microclimates. Wildflower enthusiasts and hikers will welcome this useful book.
