From the cover: “The collaboration of John Raven and Max Walters epitomises the healthy state of British field botany, in which team-work between amateur and professional investigators is producing increasingly valuable results. Max Walters is curator of the University Herbarium at Cambridge and John Raven is an authority on Greek philosophy who has for many years studied — and painted — British plants, and is now among our leading amateur authorities.

This book is based on their personal experience of flower-hunting in the hills of Scotland, Wales, Ireland and the Lake District — as well as a wide knowledge of the scientific and historical background of our mountain flora.

Mountain Flowers can be regarded as a companion to Professor Pearsall’s more general study, Mountain and Moorlands; it will undoubtedly lead many readers who are familiar with the European Alps to appreciate more vividly the botanical attractions of our own alpine flowers.”
