This highly illustrated book explores Richard Spruce's outstanding contribution to Amazonian botany. He explored South America for 15 years, from Para in Brazil to the Andes of Ecuador and Peru, discovered thousands of plants new to science and amassed information on their uses from local people. His work is still of major importance to today's botanists studying the plants of the Amazon.
