About this book

A new edition of this book first published in 1981 (originally titled Plant-Hunting in Nepal), it chronicles the travels and activities of a five-man horticultural team to the Upper Arun Valley region of eastern Nepal to collect seed and specimens of ornamental and economic plants.

'Full of excirement, humour, a good smattering of sheer magic and of course plants, it is an absolute must.' Daily Express.
