This is a re-issue in the same format of the 2014 original – now out of print.
Chris and Basak Gardner celebrate the plants and scenery to be found along 5,000 miles of the fabled Silk Road. Embracing Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Central Asia and China, more than five hundred wild flowers are shown with the beautiful landscapes in which these botanical paradises are found. The text gives descriptions of the species, plant families and their distribution, as well as information on photographing plants in the wild.
This book will be of interest to plantsmen, horticulturalists and anyone interested in the spectacular landscapes that form the Silk Road.
