Description

A still more popular edition of what has proved to the author to be a surprisingly popular book, has been prepared by the able hand of Mr. Asa Don Dickinson, and is now offered in the hope that many more people will find the wild flowers in Nature's garden all about us well worth knowing. For flowers have distinct objects in life and are everything they are for the most justifiable of reasons, i.e., the perpetuation and the improvement of their species. The means they employ to accomplish these ends are so various and so consummately clever that, in learning to understand them, we are brought to realize how similar they are to the fundamental aims of even the human race. Indeed there are few life principles that plants have not worked out satisfactorily. The problems of adapting oneself to one's environment, of insuring healthy families, of starting one's children well in life, of founding new colonies in distant lands, of the cooperative method of conducting business as opposed to the individualistic, of laying up treasure in the bank for future use, of punishing vice and rewarding virtuethese and many other problems of mankind the flowers have worked out with the help of insects, through the ages. To really understand what the wild flowers are doing, what the scheme of each one is, besides looking beautiful, is to give one a broader sympathy with both man and Nature and to add a real interest and joy to life which cannot be too widely shared.

Neltje Blanchan.

Oyster Bay, New York, January 2, 1917.

Not a single picture!

C'mon. What's the knowing worth if you can't apply it quickly? The descriptions are detailed, but this is quick port of a nearly 100-year-old reference book. The language is arcane, obviously written long ago. Even one representative image per entry would have dramatically improved this app.

2/5 stars

No pictures!

How can anyone hope to appreciate wildflowers "worth knowing" unless the guidebook has pictures?!
Don't waste your money unless you're really good at deciphering what a flower looks like from a lengthy botannical description.

needs work!!

:
Very disappointing as I was expecting a decent WildFlower book. While there are some (but not many) water color pictures they are not that helpful in identification.
Also the text is not acceptable at 2x for iPad reading.This needs to be updated badly.
