Guide to the Plants of Granite Outcrops
William H. Murdy & M. Eloise Brown Carter
This book is a field guide to — and an argument for the protection of — a unique, delicate, and under-appreciated environment.
Granite outcrops throughout the piedmont region of the Southeast support a unique flora, including species found nowhere else in the world. Unfortunately however, local governments and land-owners often consider these sites to be worthless wastelands.
Written for the layperson, the book describes about 100 plant species, which are arranged according to their flowering season.
