Orchid Fever
by Eric Hansen
Flowers of extraordinary beauty and fragility, orchids have inspired affection, obsession and even madness. For five years, Eric Hansen has explored the Earth`s farthest corners, awed by the beauty of orchids, examining the history of the orchid trade, dealing with the ferocious, strange and superficial world of plant politics that make it extremely difficult to save endangered species. Orchid Fever evokes both the colourful flowers and characters who love them, as he describes a humorous, eccentric and touching realm of horticultural desire and despair from Borneo`s steaming jungles to Kew Garden`s hallowed halls.
