Bob Liddelow has spent many hours in the field each season, seeking different orchids. Blind 'bush bashing' of likely spots rarely produces exciting finds, but given a lead by someone, the chances are greatly enhanced. That is why this book was written.
This is an orchid guide with a difference. Instead of covering all species with total distribution areas, this book treats a very representative collection of orchids in great detail. The specific sites for each orchid are illustrated with 'mud maps'.
This book also cross-references some 142 orchids with about 100 sites in the greater south-west of Western Australia. Every orchid is illustrated fully in colour. There are comprehensive indexes, a glossary, author's notes and more.
This book is presented in a plastic dust jacket. The whole approach to this book is both practical and refreshing. A very good field guide to the orchids of this part of Australia.
