To help us celebrate, LaShara Nieland and Willa Finley will be present, selling their book 'Lone Star Wildflowers.' Nieland taught junior high school in Odessa for many years, while Finley is a renowned agronomist based at Texas Tech. Many of the wildflowers featured in their book can be found here in West Texas. The book can lead to many enjoyable daytripping adventures for your family -- take your kids out and find the prettiest fields of wildflowers. Take photos of the wildflowers and try to learn the stories of the flowers, for their book will tell you if Indians or early settlers used the plants for food, medicine or material.
