Wonderful book in every respect. Great pictures for plant identification, interesting text that gives a story to remember something about our plans beyond just a name and everything is all well organized. If you want to develop a more intimate and knowledgeable relationship with the plants of SLO county, this book should be in your library and reviewed often.

One problem... There are too few copies left to be found and the price is a bit high for out-of-print books. Hopefully Mr. Ritter will release a second edition soon.

Really a great book, and good for most of California if not most the west coast. A must have for plant studies.
