"An extraordinary and enjoyable new book on plant hunters."--Monterey County Herald
"In this colorful, truly charming volume, Michael Fraser and Liz Fraser draw the reader into the story of plants from the Cape of Good Hope and the people who loved and studied them over the past 400 years. . . . Each chapter creates an inner pleasure in the heart of the reader, who will exclaim, 'Wow, I never knew that' or 'That's simply incredible.' The authors also provide ecological insights, linking the land to people the world over--people who appreciate color, beauty, scientific inquiry, and life itself. . . . Highly recommended."
