Despite a lack of Latin names (which is a bit stunning, even for an entry-level guide book), this is a useful little tome that helps one to get a broader perspective on flowering plants of the U.S. without getting too caught up in minutiae. A simplistic map for each genus shows its range acrtoss the entire U.S. without focusing on which species live where.
