In Full View — Three Ways of Seeing California Plants
by Glenn Keator, Linda Yamane, Ann Lewis (illustrator) (1995)

These handy folding pocket guides are perfect companions for a hike in one of Monterey County's many parks and wildlife sanctuaries.

A classic guide, first published 40 years ago, now updated with more than 400 wildflowers described in detail and accompanied by 244 new color photographs.

The Pacific Coast's unusual habitats — sandy dunes, salt- and freshwater marshes, woodlands and pine forests — are covered in this recently revised guide, with 268 species illustrated by photographs or line drawings.

Botanist Keator, Native American scholar Yamane, and illustrator Lewis pool their talents to reveal the essential nature of California's common plants.
