Product Description

The first full biography. Watt travelled in Fortune’s footsteps through China, and details his travels and his plant introductions. As well, his new research contradicts the accepted version that Fortune was a ‘tea thief’ and a ‘spy’. Watt has lived for many years in the Otways in Victoria when he is not abroad on planthunting expeditions.
