'Without a shadow of a doubt this is the most spectacular account and presentation of native flora I have ever seen'
Roy Lancaster,The Garden (RHS Magazine)
I ve got somewhat carried away with the beauty of all these plants and I believe you will too if you acquire this book...magnificent...page after page of stunning photographs...the text is succinct, serious and informative. I shall, I know, be thinking about, looking carefully at and reading about these plants again. --
Caroline Harbouri, The Mediterranean Garden
This is a book to make you weep. Weep at the sheer beauty of its photographs and of the flowers and landscapes laid out before your eyes
'The most beautiful new book... for a gardener, the book is like a glimpse of paradise.' --
Robin Lane Fox, Financial Times
sumptuous...[I] drooled over the pictures...transfixed by the dramatic landscape and flowers...I can only marvel at this amazing book and thank Christopher and Basak Gardner for their dedication.
Val Bourne, Oxford Times
exquisite photographs...the book is a masterpiece of great interest for all fascinated by the Silk Road flora. The image reproduction and the book design are superb. It should stimulate many to explore the routes of the Silk Road and to enjoy their amazing flora.
Professor John Birks, The Plantsman
'Impressive... more than a stunning collection of 500 flowers... the images cannot fail to enlighten browsers about the origins of many plants... less adventurous armchair travellers will relish the living tapestry in this tour de force.' --
Heather Angel, Royal Photographic Society
