The most magnificent display of colors in all the kingdom of plants is the autumnal foliage of the trees of North America. (Donald Culross Peattie). And so it is. Even though this is a vintage pocket guide it was one that people interested in observing North American trees back in the day. Each tree has a drawing which shows its main characteristics, along with a description including botanical information. These guides are great gifts for the nature lover and the pictures are frame worthy. Something like this type of book is not often produced today since photographs are valued more over drawings and illustration of the old timey pocket books.
