This is a picture book for anyone who loves the outdoors.  It contains 450 full color illustrations of birds, mammals, butterflies, reptiles, trees, and flowers by eighteen of America's leading wildlife artists.

The illustrations were originally released as a series of postage stamps between 1939 and 1951 and gathered here with descriptive text.  The closely integrated text and pictures describe all the varied habitats of North America in terms of the trees and flowers that grow there.  The result is a vivid and informative cross section of outdoor America.
