With illustrations by Evi Coulson, Rosamund Pojar of Smithers first self-published Trees and Shrubs in Winter: A Guide to the Identification of Trees and Shrubs in Northwestern British Columbia (Smithers: Cassiope Press, 2003). It was originally conceived as a study aid for her Natural Resources students at Northwest Community College. "For college students, whose school days coincide almost exactly with the leafless months," Pojar wrote, "learning how to identify deciduous plants in winter dormancy (at least those that show above te snow) is a must -- there is not much choice!" Plants featured are found throughout B.C. and the Rockies, with a focus on those north of Williams Lake. This work was revised and republished as Trees and Shrubs in Winter: An Identification Guide for Northern British Columbia (Creekstone Press 2010). $20 978-0-9783195-3-3. Illustrated by Evi Coulson.
