From our hunter-gatherer ancestors to the first agricultural societies and beyond, the great events of history have been entwined with the discovery and utilization of plant species for medicinal, nutritional, and commercial purposes. Now, as we face the challenges of climate change, our relationship with plants is more important than ever. Featuring many rare images from the archives of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, and 12 items of facsimile memorabilia--including extracts from the notebooks of famed explorers and naturalists--The Plant Hunters casts a fascinating light on the human past . . . and future.
