About this title
Frank Kingdon-Ward was the last of a long line of plant collectors and explorers that began in the 18th century with Sir Joseph Banks, architect of the Botanical Gardens at Kew. Kingdon-Ward's excursions to North Burma, China and Tibet uncovered varieties of such plant species as rhododendrons, primula, lilies and poppies - species which now grow prolifically in English gardens. This account of Kingdon-Ward's life explores his various travels and contributions to botany. The author weaves Kingdon-Ward's own descriptions of his journeys into the text to provide a vivid portrait of a dedicated and remarkable man.
