This book is simply fantastic. It has photographs and natural history information for those who want more than just a dichotomous key; and it has superb, technically accurate keys for the serious botanist. It excells in both aspects. The keys are detailed and more precise and clear than most other keys, and these characters are augmented in the descriptions. The book does an especially good job of differentiating diffcult or commonly mistaken sets of species, such as how to tell American, showy, and European mountain-ash apart; Canada versus American plum; woodbine versus Virginia creeper, and other such groups. The treatment of difficult groups such as Amelanchier, Crataegus, and Rubus is excellent and was not taken lightly.

The photos in this book are superb and must have required enormous effort and organization to acquire.

This is the Bible for anyone engaged in Minnesota forestry and horticulture, or anyone with a naturalist's curiosity about the landscape. It is the most extensive book available on the subject of Minnesota woody plants. As such, you will find it used as a textbook in college courses, but it is also quite enjoyable to read at home. The photographs are clear, and the written descriptions are concise. It is too large to be a portable field guide; this is a tome that belongs in every natural history library.
This is a terrific bargain and a resource work that will remain useful for years. The delights of this book have been mentioned by the other reviews. I will only add here that the series of all life-size, black and white drawings of all the willows is particularly useful in working through this difficult genus, and is not found anywhere else. Usually different scales of drawings are used on the same or adjoining pages making comparisons more difficult. The side color tabs are clever and a quick way to find specific sections of this large work.
