This little book, small enough to fit in your backpack or coat pocket, is a nature guide to the plants of Victoria’s high country. It is excellent, except for its lack of a map and a scale to accompany the images of plants . To many, these plants and their flowers will be new. The text with each color photograph describes the plant’s scientific and common names as will its specific zone, flowering time, and a brief summary of major anatomical features. This information should help you recognize plants in the field.
