The Silk Road is a name that has enchanted travellers for centuries. This fabled route, linking Europe with Asia, passes through some of the most spectacular scenery on earth. In this sumptuous large-format 416-page book, Chris and Basak Gardner offer a unique pictorial celebration of the plants and scenery to be found along the 5,000 miles of the Silk Road. Embracing Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Iran, Central Asia and China, more than 500 captivating wild flowers are depicted in superb photographs, together with the beautiful landscapes in which these botanical wonders are found. With an accompanying text giving descriptions of the species, plant families and their distribution, as well as information on photographing plants in the wild, this book will amaze and delight those with an interest in the beautiful landscapes that form the Silk Road and the plants to be found there. Husband and wife authors Chris and Basak Gardner will be well known to many AGS members as tour leaders with Greentours. In some respects their book is a colossal photo gallery of the many wonderful tours they have led for Greentours, which have included more than 50 trips to the countries of the Silk Road. They hope to lead many more to show others its amazing and incomparable flora.
