"I am impressed with the attractive format, the excellent color photographs, and the simplified, workable keys to family and genus."--Edwin A. Phillips, Emeritus Professor of Botany, Pomona College and the Rancho Santa Ana Botanical Garden

"These fine photographs and clear explanations of plant families, genera, and species will entice the amateur botanist lucky enough to be exploring the California deserts and their wildflowers."--David M. Gates, Professor Emeritus of Biology and former Director, Biological Station, University of Michigan

"This beautifully conceived book not only provides an outstanding introduction to the magnificent wildflowers that carpet California's deserts in years with sufficient rainfall, it does so in a way that skillfully introduces users to plant families and genera and thus gives them a foundation of understanding plants wherever they find them."--Peter Raven, Director, Missouri Botanical Garden

"[This] is an easy-to-use work that can serve equally well as a stand-alone guide to a casual day trip or, for more advanced botanists, as a practical companion to the Jepson Manual."--John N. Trager, Curator of Desert Collections, Huntington Botanical Gardens
