In his follow-up to the bestselling 'Around the World in 80 Trees', Jonathan Drori takes another trip across the globe, bringing to life the science of plants by revealing how their worlds are intricately entwined with our own history, culture and folklore. 

From the seemingly familiar tomato and dandelion to the eerie mandrake and Spanish ‘moss’ of Louisiana, each of these stories is full of surprises. Some have a troubling past, while others have ignited human creativity or enabled whole civilisations to flourish. With a colourful cast of characters all brought to life by illustrator Lucille Clerc, this is a botanical journey of beauty and brilliance.

This Plymouth Green and Science Book Club meeting is free and open to all. Just join using the Zoom link: https://plymouth.zoom.us/j/99382076613 or email Alan Ramage (menzalan@blueyonder.co.uk) for any queries.
