Flora of the Pacific Northwest : An Illustrated Manual, Second Edition

Thanks to all the people who worked and contributed to this very fine flora. I have been waiting a long time for it. My old blue copy is beat up and full of hand written notes. This new 2nd edition is much appreciated and a real tribute to Leo Hitchcock. Arthur Cronquist, and, of course, the amazing Jeanne R. Janish. I will actually be reading it page by page over the winter months. The book is awesome and inspiring. Good job!!!!!
