An Outstanding Book.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Brother Gardeners: Botany, Empire and the Birth of an Obsession (Hardcover)
It was fascinating to find out where the plants in our gardens came from, who was responsible for their discovery and for bringing them to Britain. Also, Andrea Wulf has such a light touch that we hardly notice that we're also reading the history of so many countries. A book to read for pleasure, to learn from and to keep for reference. The Glossary is a treasure-house on its own.
