Orchids are often thought of as rare, fragile "objets d'art," existing only in steamy tropical forests or in the greenhouses of the well-to-do. In fact, orchids occur worldwide from the arctic tundra to Tierra del Fuego.Minnesota is the home of 43 native species of orchids, and Orchids of Minnesota is the only book devoted specifically to their life history and study. Orchids occur in every county in Minnesota and in essentially every terrestrial habitat type.Both a field guide and an illustrated flora of scholarly quality, Orchids of Minnesota includes a section on the biology of orchids (morphology, ecology, and geographical distribution), a key to the orchid genera and species, and a description of each of the state's 43 species. Welby R. Smith offers comprehensive descriptions and information on the specific habitat of each species and interesting facts of its natural history. In addition, the book provides a detailed line drawing and photograph, a North American range map, and a Minnesota county distribution map for each species.Although regional in its focus, Orchids of Minnesota will be of interest to both national and international audiences. The detailed pen-and-ink drawings by Vera Ming Wong are beautifully executed and botanically accurate, revealing that even the most common orchid species are uncommon when compared to other plants.

Richard Evans Schultes. Although considered a revision of the 1993 Orchids of Minnesota by the same author, this new version has gone far beyond a simple update. In his preface, the author notes several factors that have contributed to the need for this revision: ▀ the interest in orchids and natural history in Minnesota has grown substantially since 1993, ▀ the continuing study of native orchids in North America has. resulted in several name changes, and ▀ the addition of 6 new orchids in Minnesota: 4 species and 2 varieties.

A wonderful field guide for the lover of native orchids. Beautiful illustrations and photos accompany keys for identification, the ecology, and distribution of these exquisite plants. I am very happy I ordered this book. My only hope is that the habitats of these 'jewels' will be respected and protected for years to come so that someday I can hand this book down to my grandchildren.

Book arrived with non-removable stickers on the front and back covers and a deep gash in the back cover (hardcover).

Orchids of Minnesota by Welby R. Smith covers the many species of Orchids that live in the state of Minnesota with all it's diverse plant habitats. The book has nice drawings that make species ID easy.
This is a taxonomic over view of the Orchid species that grow in Minnesota, covering identification, what locations or habits they grow in, were in the state they grow (including state maps) with growing locations illustrated, when they bloom and if they are rare.
The focus of the book is not pretty pictures but the identification and description of the many species and forms of these plants that live in the state. This book is for those that are familiar with plant identification and have a love for "native wild plants" It is not geared to the gardener. It is informative and easy to read, with an illustrated key (used to identify plants), species accounts (covering location were plants grow, habitats they grow in and some historical information).
I recommend this book if you are interested in the identification and ecology and location of the Orchids of Minnesota. I think it would be valuable to those that do not live in the Minnesota too for its over view of each plant. The naming of the plants takes in recent taxonomic work so the book is up to date and the keys are easy to use. A book valuable for the layman as well as those with more Botanical interests. It is a nice looking book for the series minded Orchid lover.

This is an excellent publication regarding the Orchidaceae of Minnesota and is an extremely useful reference for readers and orchid lovers within Minnesota and elsewhere. There is an expanded and updated second edition in the works, which should be published sometime in late 2011 / early 2012. So unless you are looking for a collectable first edition, I'd wait for the publishing of the second edition (and I'd purchase a few of them for collecting). JH_Minnesota

I am a nature photographer and have a passion for finding and photographing orchids. Because of their relatively short flowering times it is really essential to be able to know where and what habitat to find them, when they will be blooming and a bit of the biology of the flower. With this reference I have been able to actively locate these lovely jewels across Minnesota. It isn't a book necessarily full of photos (it has enought though of the more showy varieties) but I still highly recommend this book for anyone truely interested in orchids native to Minnesota. It is a much better reference than similar books I've seen about other states' orchids.

Glad I found this "rare" book at a semi-reasonable price. I've been regretting not buying when it was published a few years ago and amazed at prices it's been fetching in marketplace. It's great book for a Minnesota native plant-lover to have in their library. Condition was better than advertised.
