Searching for Minnesota’s Native Wildflowers

In spring 2018, Phyllis’ first grown-up book will come out, Searching for Minnesota’s Native Wildflowers,  A Guide for Beginners, Botanists, and Everyone in Between. Published by the University of Minnesota Press, it’s a collaboration with a photographer friend and is a guide for folks who love to be outdoors looking for wildflowers with names as evocative as shooting stars and kittentails.

Lost Forest, forthcoming Spring 2019

In spring 2019,  Lost Forest, with art by Betsy Bowen, will come out from the University of Minnesota Press. This picture book tells the story of how a piece of Minnesota’s virgin forests was mis-surveyed as a lake in 1882 and so was never logged. If you are ever anywhere in the vicinity of Bemidji, Minnesota or Grand Rapids, Minnesota, it’s worth a side trip to walk under those tall trees and back in time.
