The subtitle "Forty Thousand Years of Plant Life and the Human Imagination"
is a clue to the depth of this amazing study on how we humans have viewed plants over the millennia. Scientists and lay botanists have made discoveries about how plants work in the most remarkable of ways, leading to further understandings of nature in general and uses for plant material specifically. The chapter on carnivorous plants alone is worth buying the book! If you enjoy learning nature's secrets, The Cabaret of Plants
is definitely a page-turner as exciting as the best murder mystery.
