Quoted from the back of the book:
" Ken Druse, one of today's most acclaimed and popular garden writers, takes us on a ceaselessly fascinating stroll through the life of the garden, from the botanical marvels diplayed by virtually any plant to the exploits of the plant explorers who once- and still do- race across the globe like Indiana Jones in search of rare and exotic specimens, to the need to conserve the threatened diversity of the natural world.
Ripe with facts, punctured myths, serious investigation, and practical gardening wisdom, this is a gloriously illustrated and enlightening celebration of the plants that delight and sustain us."
Nice read, interesting and stunning pictures.
I have this book on my top shelf.
