Yosemite Valley, one of America’s most iconic and recognizable places, has long been a destination for tourists, a proving ground for climbers, and a beloved locale within the country’s national park system.

Its alpine ridges and lowland valleys provide the casual naturalist with a lifetime’s worth of fantastic flora, and under the protection of the national park service these natural treasures have flourished. Now, for the first time in over twenty years, a guidebook will catalog and categorize these gorgeous flowers in an appealing and accessible package. Yosemite Wildflowers, by authors and photographers Barry and Judy Breckling, collects and describes the vast number of wildflowers found in the Yosemite area, with tools and hints on proper identification. Whether it is used as a field guide or a keepsake, this book captures the beauty to be found in Yosemite.
