The work of Christopher Sandeman, an explorer and botanist who travelled widely in the Andes in search of rare plants. This work is described by the publisher as 'better described as a rhapsody than an essay [...] expresses with the feeling of a poet the underlying source of his passion'.

The work is illustrated throughout with wood engravings from John O'Connor, a talented woodcutter and painter known for his rural and melancholy prints.
