Winner of Carroll Abbott Award

Shirley and I were thrilled to recently receive the Carroll Abbott Award from the Native Plant Society of Texas for our book Grasses of the Texas Hill Country. Named for the founder of the Native Plant Society of Texas, this award is presented annually for the best writings about native Texas plants in a popular vein. (Non-scientific.)

The Native Plant Society of Texas promotes research, conservation and utilization of native plants and plant habitats of Texas through education, outreach and example. NPSOT is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with over 30 local chapters around Texas.

Grasses of the Texas Hill Country was our first photographic field guide published by Texas A&M University Press. We have also recently published Texas Cacti and just completed Texas Wildflower Vistas and Hidden Treasures, both by the A&M Press.
