I just got this book a couple of weeks ago and can't figure out how I got along without it.

The photos show plants in their "natural" habitat, which is useful for determining growth pattern and location. There are also drawings which are likewise useful.

The beginning of the book explains the term "weed" as the authors use it, so when chokecherries or something else that most find beneficial show up in the book, it's already been explained why it's there. In fact, I find the inclusiveness of the book to be most helpful in that respect. Read and enjoy!

This is an absolutely, totally awesome book for weed identification in the Great Plains. Covering Southern Alberta/Saskatchewan down through the Dakotas, Minnesota Wyoming, Nebraska, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas.

I am so impressed with this book that I have ordered several for gifts. Almost everything you want to know about any known weeds that invade these areas, and very detailed photographs.

A wonderful, informative book that I will never be without again.
