Biographical Note:

Mark Turner is a professional photographer who has been photographing gardens and native plant environments in the Pacific Northwest for over 25 years. He brings a strong sense of photographic design, attention to detail, and curiosity about both native and garden plants to his work.

Phyllis Gustafson ran a small seed-collection business specializing in Northwest natives and is well acquainted with the wide flora of the region. She also worked with native plants in the nursery trade for more than 20 years. She is an officer of the North American Rock Garden Society (NARGS) and writes frequently for their bulletin. Plant societies around the country often ask her to lecture about the plants found on her quests. She lives in Central Point, Oregon.
"A sturdy, handsome reference work that displays three flowers per page for more than 400 pages. . . . The book gives even amateur nature gawkers a chance to quickly separate the daisies from the asters. Fine range maps." -- The Seattle Times
"The Northwest's most complete field guide ever, this lovely volume pictures 1,220 wildflowers that grow from the Siskiyous to southwestern British Columbia." -- Sunset
