“Phyllis Hammond has been painting wildflowers in the North Country for more than fifty years. In this wonderful book she combines two of her enduring passions–watercolour painting and travel–and the result is both informative and a visual delight. This is must reading for anyone who has ever admired the small beauty of a wildflower while surrounded by the breathtaking majesty of America’s or Canada’s great parks and wildlife refuges.” – David Sleeper, Editor and Publishers, Vermont Magazine

“Internationally acclaimed artist Phyllis Hammond has taken time away from her favorite sweeping mountain vistas and brooding forest studies to focus on the quiet pleasure of wildflowers as she travels across North America. Exquisite watercolors, a delightful and joyful text with surprises blooming around each bend make for a splendid vicarious journey or blueprint for the adventurous traveler, indeed anyone bent on exploring the intimate side of nature’s beauty.” – Jerry Gibbs, Outdoor Life Magazine
