The Botany of Desire

Botanika touhy

Flowers. Trees. Plants. We’ve always thought that we controlled them. But what if, in fact, they have been shaping us? Using this provocative question as a jumping off point, The Botany of Desire takes us on an eye-opening exploration of our relationship with the natural world—seen from the plants’ point of view.
