"Sagebrush Country is delightful . . . and is packed with gems of lore that most readers probably didn't know. It surveys most of the flowers and grasses throughout this region's lower elevations."--Joseph Bauman, Deseret News

Sagebrush country is a land of contrasts--a place of desolation and a place of beauty. This field guide explores the elegance of the sagebrush steppe as expressed in the colorful spring and fall flowers and, more subtly, in the wondrous adaptations that enable plants to withstand the extremes so typical of this harsh environment.

Through color photographs and nontechnical descriptions, this book introduces visitors and residents alike to the abundant plant life in the land of bitterbrush and coyotes. This book covers northern Nevada, northeastern California, eastern Oregon and Washington, southern Idaho, western Montana, northern Utah, much of Wyoming, and the foothills and valleys of northwestern Colorado.
