Summary

Rome was once the seat of a vast and powerful empire known for its conquering armies, grand architecture, ahead of its time engineering, and lavish lifestyles of the ruling elite. Today’s modern Rome has all of the elegant, ancient history of its past life mixed with the modern feel of a city at the epicenter of all things Italian. Where else but the “Eternal City” can you grab a slice of authentic Roman style pizza while heading for St. Peter’s Square to see the Pope’s weekly address, or indulge in homemade gelato while checking out the inspiring awe of the ancient Colosseum?
 
There’s no question that Rome is full of historic splendor and beauty. Not only is it the largest city in all of Italy, but it has stood the test of time, being built on seven hills along the banks of the Tiber river. As the old saying goes, “All roads lead to Rome,” and when you journey there, you’ll instantly realize why. As the central part of one of the most powerful empires the world has ever seen, Rome was a city known for its religious, artistic, architectural, and aristocratic significances. From priceless works of art to delicious, authentic cuisine, Rome has plenty to offer the eager traveler looking to seek out historic adventures as well as modern fun.

    From the acclaimed author of Spring Wildflowers of the Northeast, a beautifully illustrated follow-up introduction to the summer-blooming wildflowers of the northeastern United States and Canada 
    This exquisitely illustrated volume provides an accessible, in-depth introduction to summer-blooming wildflowers of the northeastern United States and Canada. Featuring more than 700 detailed color photos and a large, beautifully designed format, the book delves into the life histories of more than thirty-five wildflowers and their relatives, from common roadside favorites, such as asters and milkweeds, to interesting, lesser-known species, including Indian pipe and ginseng. Drawing on a wealth of personal experience and the latest scientific research, and presenting it all in terms anyone can understand, acclaimed naturalist and photographer Carol Gracie invites readers to enhance their appreciation of the beauty of these wildflowers by learning not just their names or how many petals they have, but what pollinates them, how their seeds are dispersed, how they interact with other plants and animals, how Native Americans and other people have used them, and other interesting facts. 
    Each species is illustrated with a range of detailed color photos that not only capture its beauty but illustrate the features discussed in the text and show the plant in its environment alongside the pollinators, herbivores, or seed dispersers with which, in many cases, the wildflower has evolved. Other topics covered include the naming of wildflowers; pathogens and pests; related species in other parts of the world; and wildflowers in history, literature, and art.
