From the cover: “In the summer of 1910 Reginald Farrer — harsh-voiced, excitable, moustached and tending to fat — made a six week journey around the Graian, Cottian and Maritime Alps looking for rare plants. His enthusiasm and exuberance overrode the difficulties of climbing to 8500 feet without the benefits of modem equipment, and enabled him to rejoice at every new botanical discovery. “Among the Hills” is Farrer’s delightful and highly personal account of the journey which gave us the Dianthus neglectus, Aquilegia alpine and other alpine plants now found in every garden.”
