Cacti: familiar symbols of prickly endurance on stark landscapes. But the family cactacae ranges from Argentina to Canada and includes tropical Brazilian, West Indies flora as well as peyote. These 45 plates of over 25 species rendered for coloring provide an excellent primer on the plant. All in color on covers. Introduction, captions, hints for growing by Dr. C. S. Ripps.
