In this delightful hybrid of a book—part memoir and part travel journal—the bestselling author Jamaica Kincaid ventures deep into the mountains of Nepal with a small group of botanists in search of native Himalayan plants that will grow in her Vermont garden.

Alighting from a plane in the Annapurna Valley, they are met by Maoist guerrillas—an event that recurs with alarming regularity throughout their trip. The group sets off into the mountains with Sherpas and bearers, crossing spectacular landscapes, Nepalese villages, and herds of yaks. In beautiful, introspective prose, Kincaid intertwines the harrowing Maoist encounters with botanical discoveries, fascinating daily details, and lyrical musings on gardens, nature, home, and family.
