Part of the description on the back cover reads: "Landscaping with Native Plants of Wisconsin is the first book designed to help you identify and effectively use our state's native plants and native-plant communities in a typical home landscape. You'll find the basic gardening information you need to successfully grow native plants. You'll learn what level of native-plant landscaping is right for you and get expert advice on the process of designing a natural garden that fits your property your lifestyle, and your family's needs."

The description is accurate, and the book is very well written. Lynn M. Steiner was the editor of Northern Gardener magazine for 15 years. Her writing style is very pleasant and entertaining. Informative and detailed without being cumbersome.

In addition to the landscaping section, there is a large "Native Plant Profiles" section with comprehensive descriptions on 500 Wisconsin native species. The descriptions include information on planting, maintenance and landscape uses for each plant.

It's just a great book for anyone in the Midwest that is interested in learning about native plant gardening.
