About this book

A rich patchwork history of plant-lore which covers the record of succulent plants from cave paintings and scrolls to laser painting and databases; from herb lore to selective breeding and environmentalism; from Theophrastus to Linnaeus, Darwin and the modern sages; from the first Melocactus mistaken for a fruit to the thousands in cultivation today.
