The Orchid Hunter: A Young Botanist’s Search for Happiness

Venue: Swan Ballroom

In the summer after leaving school, a young botanist sets out to fulfil a childhood dream –to find every species of orchid native to the British Isles. He has just a few months to complete his quest and it will require ingenuity, stamina and a large dose of luck. As he battles the vagaries of the British climate in his clapped-out car, feverishly chasing each emerging bloom, Bersweden takes the reader on a remarkable botanical journey.
