The stories of six colonial Australian gardeners and their transformation of the Australian landscape are told in this revealing look at 19th-century botany, horticulture, and plant collecting. Original writings, illustrations, and photographs from this time period help to reveal the progress of the gardeners as they made clearings on land that they did not understand people still inhabited.
