Around The World in 80 Plants
Around The World in 80 Plants by Drori, Jonathan & Clerc, Lucille
A trip across the globe in 80 plants, revealing how their worlds are intricately entwined with our own history, culture and folklore. From the seemingly familiar tomato and dandelion to the eerie mandrake and Spanish 'moss' of Louisiana, each of their stories is full of surprises. Some have a troubling past, while others have ignited human creativity or enabled whole civilizations to flourish. With a colourful cast of characters brought to life by illustrator Lucille Clerc, this is a botanical journey of beauty and brilliance.
