KIRKUS REVIEW

The longest title of the year -- for a handbook which is the outgrowth of a horticultural project begun by the National Council and continued by the Garden Club of America. Ever wondered what that flower was that you see from your train window? Here's the book to help you find out for yourself. The first half gives an overall picture of representatives of plant families commonly found along roadsides, with marginal line drawings for most of them and text indicating prominent characteristics, and most characteristic species in a genus. The arrangement is broken down by color groups, which aids in spot identification. Part two takes each state separately, and each section is contributed by an authoritative person interested in the project. There is cross reference to the plants listed in Part One. There are state maps and listings of routes, of displays of ornamental plants in gardens open to the public. Travel reference plus item. Sure to secure enthusiastic endorsement of nationwide garden clubs.
