"If you open this book because you care about monarchs, you'll keep reading to learn about the fascinating and important roles milkweeds play in so many human and wild stories."--Karen Oberhauser, PhD, advisor to the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation
"An approachable, elegantly illustrated guide to the ecological hub that is milkweed." --Benjamin Vogt, author of Prairie Up: An Introduction to Natural Garden Design and?A New Garden Ethic
"A beautifully illustrated natural and social history of milkweed, intertwined with the author's personal narrative." --Rachel Winfree, PhD, Professor of Ecology, Evolution, and Natural Resources, Rutgers University
"This is a great book for a deep dive into a well-known wildflower and all the life that swirls around it, from the beloved Monarch butterfly and numerous other insects that depend on these plants, to the birds, mammals and microbial life in the soil. The artwork is spectacular and illustrative. I wish the stories of all our wildflowers could be so engagingly told." --Heather McCargo, Wild Seed Project
