From the back cover
Perhaps the only currently available field guide that describes the Sand Hills grassland type and identifies a great many of the plants there. It is also a very complete and beautiful book. The first 80 or so pages are devoted to grasses that are common to this area and the final 30 to woody plants and trees. Between are beautiful photos and descriptions the flowers we see all summer. Until Jon Farrar’s Wildflowers of Nebraska and the Great Plains returns, this book will have no equal for our area.
