Flower Hunters, 2 Aug. 2008
Flower Hunters is a great read. Mary and John Gribbin tell the engaging stories of the earliest botanical explorers, really bringing their characters to life. They bring us the well researched details of these founding figures in the new science of Botany with an exciting narrative that makes you live their intrepid adventures.
Highly reccomend this book to everyone and avidly look forward to hopefully future books that continue the story on.
