We’ve all been amazed one day by the amazing diversity of the plant world. But every plant has a story. Katia Astafieff, a traveler passionated by plants, tells us ten incredible adventures of plants from elsewhere, such as tobacco, kiwi, rhubarb and the strange rafflesia. Ten plants, but also ten explorers on expeditions to the ends of the World risking their lives, researchers of green gold, Indiana Jones of botany. Let yourself be guided in the footsteps of the British spy Robert Fortune, disguised as a mandarin to steal the secret of tea from the Chinese, or the eccentric Joseph Rock who brought to the West some seeds of a delicate peony hitherto unknown.
