What Readers Are Saying:

"A careful morphological description is provided for each species, together with a brief account of its distribution in Texas, its habitat, and its uses. Each description is accompanied by a beautifully drawn illustration of the habit of the plant and a detail of the flower structure. . . . drawings and specific descriptions are excellent, and the book fulfills its title perfectly." --American Reference Books Annual

" . . . an excellent reference book for anyone interested in identifying the varieties of grass which grow in Texas." --Texas Association of Nurserymen

"Gould's technical taxonomic treatment is now popularized for the amateur botanist and rancher. . . . Foresters will be using this manual as multiple-use management further evolves, for growth of range forage for livestock and game will accompany fiber production to supply the state's mills. A glossary and an opening section enable use of the keys by those with only an elementary knowledge of botanical nomenclature." --Texas Forestry
