A recent purchaser said "My wife is delighted with the book. She has spent a lot of time over the past three months walking the paths and cliffs around our home territory of Ravenscar and Staintondale, and it has re-kindled her latent interest in wild flowers. Nan's book is just what she needed to broaden her knowledge. It is very comprehensive!
