I love everything Oliver Sacks writes. This is a departure from his usual subject, and even though the subject might seem unusual, the search for rare ferns in Mexico, his writing style keeps one interested. A combination travel journal, fern handbook, observations on his fellow fern lovers. Recommended.

Well written. Interesting mix of botanical stuff, of which I have only a marginal interest in ferns, and a travelogue. You get a good feel for the people and the country in the state of Oaxaca. Having been to the city of Oaxaca myself a few years ago I could relate well to the physical descriptions and the feelings the author conveys.
