Product Description: Ohio University Press is pleased to announce the publication of another beautifully illustrated reference work by June Carver Roberts. On the publication of her first botanical guide, Born in Spring: A Collection of Spring Wildflowers (Ohio University Press, 1976), Roberts' work was enthusiastically received:

"Roberts combines outstanding artistic talent, a love of wildflowers, and an engaging writing style to produce a uniquely charming volume on spring wildflowers. It attracts the eye, and it provides an engrossing series of vignettes of ninety-one species, guaranteed to lift the spirits when the now is deepest and the thermometer lowest." -- Choice

In this new study of wild plants, Roberts depicts over 250 plants and describes their methods of survival over the winter. She knows her habitat, flower design, pollinators, style of fruiting, and seed or spore dispersal. The drawings and paintings were done from living plants, in minute detail, and with botanical accuracy. Robert's collection of winter plants is an artistic tribute to the quiet beauty of the woodlands of Northeastern United States.

Artist and author June Roberts has a special interest in identifying and preserving rare and endangered native plants. She has won many awards, including the John Marin Award, for her drawings and watercolors, and has pieces in the permanent collection of the Butler Art Institute, the Akron Art Institute, and the Huntington Museum.

FAQ'S

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.
