Hansen, a free lance travel writer, is fascinated by the outrageous world of orchids and those who are obsessed by them - collectors, botanists, smugglers, the "orchid police", judges, etc. From the jungles of Borneo to the rarified atmosphere of London's Kew Gardens, his accounts are sometimes appalling and often hilarious. Very well written.
