Walking in the Beauty of the World: Reflections of a Northwest Botanist

Beauty of the World Book CoverThe Washington Native Plant Society is presenting a collection of botanical essays by Joe Arnett. Rich with illustrations by Washington artists, the book includes revisions of twenty-four articles that have appeared in the Society's publications.

Joe has been a professional botanist and teacher in the Northwest for over twenty years, and the essays describe wild - and not so wild - places, personal knowledge of the plants, and wider topics of a human relationship with nature. The writer invites the reader to step off the path of routine and catch a glimpse of the natural world in which we live.

Joe Arnett is generously donating all net proceeds from the sale of this book to the Washington Native Plant Society.

Like any good book there are so many lines for reflection and essays to share. Buy a copy for yourself and plan to buy one for someone you surely will wish to share it with.

You may obtain this book from the Central Puget Sound Chapter before and after its program meetings or you may order it through WNPS by mailing a check for $10.00 to the Washington Native Plant Society. Make check payable to WNPS and use our business address below.
