Orchid Fever: A Horticultural Tale of Love, Lust & Lunacy
Eric Hansen. In 1993 Eric Hansen led an expedition through the steaming jungles of Borneo to find the world’s rarest orchid. Five years later he was still on the trail of the true story behind one of the world’s strangest plants & humanity’s greatest obsessions. From the Orinoco River to the hothouses of Kew, & the clandestine nurseries of Europe to the peat bogs of northern Minnesota, this is a tale of orchid smugglers, ice-cream makers & visionary breeders; of corruption, murder, espionage & moths with 12-inch tongues; & of the petty, bizarre world of international plant politics, & the wide range of gentle people whose overriding passion in life is the cultivation of these beautiful, fragile flowers. “Funny, weird, & poignant!”
