Mrs. Dana gives short interesting descriptions of a number of wildflowers, mostly native, found in the northeastern United States. As well as describing the flower's appearance, the eloquent descriptions often include information about folklore, references in poetry, and so on. Most flowers are illustrated a full-page black and white line drawing by Marion Satterlee. She also give helpful definitions of many technical terms relating to botany, and some background on how evolution has shaped the flowers. A treasure trove of information for wildflower lovers!
