Excerpt from Western Flower Guide: Wild Flowers of the Rockies and West to the Pacific

The preparation of a Pacific Coast Wild Flower Guide OI tne present small proportions has naturally involved a large exercise Of elimination. The ?owers herein illustrated number 250, and the brief descriptions in non-technical language include besides these a few more whose resem blance' to certain Of those depicted makes identification relatively easy. The selection of the subjects has been based mainly upon the hold which such ?owers have upon the popular heart on the Pacific Coast, and also to some extent by the part they have played in the human life Of the region. A few introduced plants - not uncommon in other parts of the world, and some of them even homely - have been included in the descriptions, because their abundance, their uses, or their habits make them subjects Of interest to travelers and the general student.

While the region covered in the Guide is principally the three Coast States, California, Oregon, and Washington, in many cases the plants described are also found eastward in the States from Idaho south to Arizona, and in some cases as far east as Colorado, New Mexico, and Texas. Plains and valleys, seaside and mountains, as well as the Southwestern desert region (a marvellously rich ?oral field for a part Of the year) are represented.

While this book has been prepared out Of a personal acquaintance of many years with the field, the author desires to acknowledge his indebtedness to the following works upon which he has had Occasion to draw for special descriptions and points - Gray's Synoptical Flora of North America, Jepson's Flora Of California (in course of publication), Hall's Compositae of Southern California and Yosemite Flora, Parson's Wild Flowers Of California, Armstrong's Western Wild Flowers, Meehan's Native Flowers and Ferns Of the United States, and the valuable monographs of Chestnut, Coville, Havard, and Barrows on the Indian uses of native plants.
