"...this will go down as one of the greats of plant exploration literature..." - Roy Lancaster "The appeal of the book lies as much in Ward's prose as in the thrilling story of exploration and discovery. He was a fine writer and it is cause for celebration that one of his best boos is now again available after a gap of seventy years." - Ursula Buchan, The Independant "What is quite extraordinary about this region is the way in which landscapes, plants, people and the sense of the religious fuse... It is hard to imagine that anyone could be disappointed in this book." - Malcolm MacGregor, Journal of the Scottish Rock Garden Club
