    A treasure house of a book. Bruce Partridge’s excitement is infectious; his expeditions into bogs or woods or deep into the gypsum are some of the book’s great delights. Here might be a painted trillium, or over here might be a mayflower. This lovingly-realized paean to the wildflowers of Nova Scotia should be on everyone’s bookshelf.

    This book takes you on a personal journey, showcases historic botanical accounts from the early plant explorers who botanized the region, and posits explanations for the presence of disjunct and unique flora found in the province. It is a true delight for nature enthusiasts and botany lovers alike...What makes this book truly wonderful is Bruce’s genuine reverence for the flora and fauna of Nova Scotia, fostering a deep sense of appreciation for the intricate beauty that can be found in the most unassuming places. It is a testament to Bruce’s lifelong passion for native plants and a heartfelt invitation to discover and cherish the wildflowers and wild spaces of Nova Scotia.
