His masterful prose is a delight to read, many fine details emerge of his worldly travels. Extremely well documented are his chapters in this book; whereby he takes a genus and gives you wonderful information on it. Take for example his thoughts on the shrub- viburnum; a great lot of info is given in this chapter and the reader comes away, actually blown away with details of this perfect shrub.
The photos throughout are a delight, clear and beautifully presented.
"There are few gardeners where validation of a plant's worthiness I would take so seriously", I quote Dan's words here, from his forward to Marina Christopher's recent book; definitely applies here to Dan's treasured book.
Purchase and enjoy it, hanging on every word in this detailed masterpiece.
Every reader become aware of how so plentiful attractive plants are living on this earth.
To draw them into the garden from secret forest, desert, sea shore etc for our enjoyment is well done by this book.
I rush to this book as soon as I get home. Then I sit down in my most comfortable chair, and I am instantly transported to parts of the world I can only imagine. I know many of these plants, although I don't grow them in my yard. Now I feel as if I know each plant intimately. The scope of information available in the book is such that I believe I might actually be able to grow some of these great plants, if I am patient, pay attention to the siting of the plant, and the specific needs of the plants.
I love the manner in which the book was written. It is as if you are having a conversation with an old friend, who just wants to tell you about his most recent experience with the plants he encountered on his travels. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in shrubs and vines, and something a little out of the ordinary.
