Product Description:

Back in print at last in a third edition, the classic Forest and Shade Trees of Iowa now has a wealth of full-color photographs and updated, reorganized information that will please both new and returning readers.
 
Part 1 of this guide focuses on identification, with user-friendly keys to both summer and winter trees and illustrated descriptions of more than one hundred common species. The trees are arranged according to similarities in foliage; each entry includes a large scan of a leafy branch along with two or three smaller photos of buds, flowers, fruits, and winter twigs. The text contains a description of the species, its geographical distribution, and notes on how to distinguish it from similar species. Part 2 is divided into conifers and flowering trees and includes all trees native to Iowa, trees that are widely planted, invasive species, some less commonly planted trees, and tall native shrubs that might be mistaken for trees. The authors provide information about the natural history of individual trees, their ecological requirements, pests and diseases that affect them, and their usefulness for such different purposes as windbreaks, landscaping, wildlife plantings, fuel, lumber, and food. Following these two main parts, three shorter sections describe the planting and care of trees, Iowa’s forest communities, and good places to see trees in the state; a glossary and a bibliography are also included.
 
A complete guide to Iowa’s trees, both native and introduced, full of hundreds of color photos, this new edition of Forest and Shade Trees of Iowa will be immensely useful to arborists, foresters, horticulturists, landscape architects, gardeners, and all Iowans and midwesterners who appreciate the beauty and value of trees and want to learn more about them.

Product Description:
Iowa residents Craig Farlinger and Mike Whye need no words to explain how incredible their home state is - the proof is in the 109 color photographs that make up their new book, Iowa: A Photographic Journey, available from Farcountry Press.

Working independently from Cresco and Council Bluffs, respectively, Farlinger and Whye have covered nearly every corner of Iowa in their 54 combined years of professional photography. In Iowa: A Photographic Journey, the duo delivers not only the cozy farm scenes and small-town charm that make the state great, but also a wide variety of true-blue Iowa subjects visitors and even locals may not have previously seen.

Although both photographers are well rounded, Iowa: A Photographic Journey brings out their individual strengths. Farlinger takes readers on a journey through majestic natural places, including Iowa's beloved state parks, old-growth forests, limestone bluffs, winding rivers, and the unique prairies of the Loess Hills. Whye highlights the state's culture, from the famous covered bridges of Madison County to the golden Iowa Capitol, from the freewheeling sculptures of Pappajohn Sculpture Park to the two-wheeled extravaganza RAGBRAI, and all the rodeos, museums, historical sites, and giant concrete bulls in between.

The book's images reveal a rare passion for all things Iowa. If, as the old saying goes, a picture is worth 1,000 words, Farlinger and Whye have composed a splendid love letter to the Hawkeye State.

Product Description:
This classic of midwestern natural history is back in print with a new format and new photographs. Originally published in 1979, Wildflowers of Iowa Woodlands introduced many naturalists to the beauty and diversity of the native plants of the wooded communities that once covered more than 6 million acres of the state. Now redesigned with updated names and all-new images, this reliable field companion will introduce woodland wildflowers to a new generation of outdoor enthusiasts in the Upper Midwest.

The species accounts are accompanied by brilliant full-page color photographs by Larry Stone, Thomas Rosburg, and Carl Kurtz. In clear, straightforward, and accessible prose, authors Sylvan Runkel and Alvin Bull provide common, scientific, and family names; the Latin or Greek meaning of the scientific names; habitat and blooming times; and a complete description of plant, flower, and fruit. Particularly interesting is the information on the many ways in which Native Americans and early pioneers used these plants for everything from pain relief to insecticides to tonics.

Iowa’s original savannas, woodlands, and forests were cleared with amazing thoroughness, yet enough beauty and diversity remain to give joy to hikers, birders, and mushroomers. Wildflowers of Iowa Woodlands will inspire both amateurs and professionals with the desire to learn more about the wonders of today’s woodlands.

Wow, that’s a cool-looking mushroom. Wonder what it is. Hey, look at that weird insect.

Birds, mammals, trees, wildflowers, insects, reptiles, amphibians, fish, spiders, mushrooms, ferns, grasses, even constellations overhead and rocks underfoot—it’s all here. With authoritative yet broad coverage, nontechnical language, and more than two thousand color photographs, this book is an essential reference for nature lovers living in or visiting Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa.
