Robert G. M. Friend's career in orchids began more than fifty years ago, when he was just ten years old. During that time, in addition to work as a lawyer, mediator, and tropical fruit orchardist, he has grown, studied, hybridized, photographed, imported, and exported orchids. He has professionally landscaped gardens with orchids, sold their cut flowers, and run a successful orchid nursery. He has traveled throughout the world visiting orchids in their natural habitats and in gardens during the research of this book. He and his wife, Lilinoe, live on the eastern coast of Australia.
