This book helps visitors to appreciate the natural world around them, providing a guide to the geology and the flowers of Europe’s Alpine mountains. Learn about distinctive and beautiful alpine flowers, how and where they grow, and how they have been used by mankind for thousands of years. Identify more than 300 Alpine flowers and plants with the easy-to-use, colour-coded flower identification guide.

“We have been lucky enough to have the author in Leysin this summer and our community loves his book. It is much more than a flower identification book. There are also educational cardsets for sale that our faculty kids have loved using.” Virginia Morgan Leysin American School
