Two of the Northwest's most respected nature writers have collaborated once again to produce an outstanding field guide to the plants that grow at high elevation, above the tree line, in the mountain systems of the Western Cordillera. The book features more than 500 plants found in the alpine regions of western North America. MacKinnon's and Pojar's rich and engaging notes on each species include descriptions of the unique characteristics of each plant, as well as of its habitat and range.
