A biography of this little-known, yet highly influential plant hunter from the turn of the century. In just two expeditions to China, he collected over 65,000 specimens, earning himself the nickname `Chinese' Wilson. Today, there is hardly a garden without one of his introductions. Written by his great-nephew, this account is based on his original journals and photographs, and includes brief accounts of many of the plants he brought back.
