Joseph Hooker: Botanical Trailblazer

Joseph Hooker: Botanical Trailblazer is a compelling account of Joseph Hooker as a plant collector extraordinaire. Joseph Hooker was one of the creators of the modern scientist – medical graduate, botanist, plant collector and adventurer– who circled the globe, discovering, describing, naming or introducing over 12,000 plants that have changed the face of our gardens and landscape.

A confidante of Charles Darwin, he made his first plant collecting expedition to Antarctica in 1837, an epic undertaking that took him to the ends of the known world, collecting and identifying hundreds of plants.
