By: Christian Lamb
225 pages, Col photos & illus
This richly illustrated book stems from Lamb's `Living Plant Museum' in her garden in Cornwall. Drawing on documentation from Linnean, Kew, British, Royal Horticultural, and Natural History Libraries, she tells us which collectors first discovered these species and what challenges they overcome to bring them home to our shores. These epic botanical wanderings are supplemented with lamb's own adventures, following in the footsteps of botanical greats such as Joseph Banks, Robert Fortune, and Lewis & Clark.
