Naturalist Bob Gibbons selected fifty of the most floriferous sites that are reasonably accessible to nature lovers in this colorful work on the world’s wildflowers. In the introduction he explains some of the reasons why these places are so flowery. To encourage visitors, individual descriptions of sites include information on the location, the reasons to visit the site, and the timing of floral display plus type of protective status of the place. The author’s panoramic views of bedazzling landscapes spur even the most lethargic to pack for a tour. As he says, “they are all fabulous places. Enjoy and respect them — they are some of the finest treasures that we have.”
