An Urban Field Guide to the Plants in Your Path
by Maggie Herskovits
This little field guide presents 15 plants that can be found growing throughout your urban home. Detailed illustrations coupled with facts about growth habits and history bring to light the life of these urban plants. Learn how they come from a diverse group of plant families and use a distinct set of adaptations to thrive in the urban environment and then learn how they share their gifts with us and the rest of the living world. Bring this field guide on a walk around the neighborhood to greet friends both old and new. This book is to help us connect to our place, name the plants, recognize their survival skills and admire their brilliance!
