Looks like a definite buy.  My Warnock books are dated and I like the concept of this one.

i bought this book prior to my oct 08 trip  and love it . color photos , interesting text, and, general localities make this book a good buy .he researched who found and named each plant. i own many plant books, none provide that information. he must have spent a large/ huge amount of time doing the research. i'm always looking for plants i haven't seen before and now i've got a great resource to help me in the hunt. jim2

Can someone scan and post one or two of the pages so I can get an idea on what the book is like?  I thinking about ordering it.

If you go to Amazon

http://www.amazon.com/Little-Big-Bend-Uncommon-Southwest/dp/0896726134/ref=rsl_mainw_dpl?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER

and then click the cover graphic, they've already provided several scans.
