In recent years, planet lovers and environmentalists have cultivated a popular interest in prairie restoration. Many of the most common prairie plants are now easily visible along roadsides and park trails (not to mention gardens) throughout the Midwest.

Prairie in Your Pocket offers an easy-to-use and inexpensive guide for identifying more than one hundred of the most common plants of the tallgrass prairie. Ideal for travelers, the guide is laminated for durability and folds down to the size of a business envelope. Slip one into your glove compartment for road trips or into your backpack or pocket for cycling and hiking.

By focusing on the ecosystem, Prairie in Your Pocket is perfect for amateurs as an introduction to prairie plant identification. It is the only guide of its kind for identifying tallgrass species. The guide provides color illustrations along with common scientific names, plant heights, and blooming periods for 114 species.

“Our customers love Prairie in Your Pocket. It's perfect not only for your pocket but for your backpack or on your car dash. We can't wait for more.”— Chris Turland, Missouri Botanical Garden
Prairie in Your Pocket moves faster than a goldang prairie fire. I can't wait to see Iowa's next addition to their nature guide series.”—Jim Harris, Prairie Lights Books
