This is a great companion book to take on hikes & treks, possibly along with your book on birds and/or trees. Don't want to have to carry too much - just while you're learning to identify birds and plants ;) Birds will also help you realise when some plants / trees are. Great little book and is easy to carry in a large baggy pocket.
