OUT OF EDEN carries the Eden Project's message way beyond the pit. With beautiful pictures and a vibrant text written by the Eden team, it takes the exhibits - cotton, coffee, tea, rubber, cola, chicle, chocolate, and many more - as its starting point for a narrative combining history, botany, horticulture and global politics to follow the story of the world's crucial plants. But, like the Eden Project, the book is not just about plants. It is about sustainability, about bringing industrial landscapes back from the dead, about living at one with Nature at a time of ecological danger. OUT OF EDEN is a stunning companion to the Eden Project - and an essential reference for everyone concerned for our planet.
