Frank Kindon-Ward.

This book blends autobiography with speculations on plant geography and first hand accounts of the discovery of various plants and their introduction to gardens. The author recalls his triumphs and disappointments, the adventures, the surprises, and the riddles of plant collecting in remote parts of Assam, Burma, China, and Tibet. He recalls, too, the occasions when the sheer beauty beauty of the scene impressed itself on his mind: drifts of gentians on a bare mountain, acres of yellow primulas, forests ablaze with rhododendron blooms. Photographs. First edition.
