    Guide to Northwestern Wild Berries by Underhill Ted

    Hancock House, 2015-01-01. Paperback. 8.5 5.5 0.25. Hancock House Wild Berries contains a simple key and nearly 100 magnificent color photographs to guide you quickly to berry identification. Let us look together at the more commonly seen wild berries plants of the Pacific Northwest - roughly the area west of the Rocky Mountains from southern Alaska to the Columbia River of further. We won't cover every last kind, for some may be left out that few of us will ever see. This book is not for the serious botanist, but for the family or individual seeking simple and reliable information about the berries along our roads and trails. Because this is not for the expert, we shall take some other liberties. We'll use the word berry in the popular sense rather than in the more restricted sense applied by the botanist. Also, we shall lump together some closely related kinds of plants. J.E. Underhill is a self-taught naturalist with many years of experience and special interests in the world of plant life. In 1958 he joined the British Columbia Provincial Parks Branch as their first permanent naturalists, and his work in this field has kept him in touch with a wide variety of natural history subjects. Ted Underhill is best known for his first book, Wild Berries of the Pacific Northwest. A Field Guide to the Berries of the North West. Color photos & b/w sketches throughout.
