Reviews - What do customers think about Wild Orchids in Myanmar Vol. 1: Last Paradise of Wild Orchids (Wild Orchids in Myanmar: Last Paradise of Wild Orchids)?

Good book to have to really have a sense of how orchids grow in the wild.  Sep 15, 2009
First of all, if you're looking for a book with detailed text about orchids and how to cultivate them, this is not that kind of book.

The primary focus of this book is conservation of orchids in their natural habitats by bringing awareness of their natural surroundings, their ecology, and their plight in facing extinction through habitat loss and over collecting for the orchid hobby and Eastern medicine in Myanmar.

In fact, there is very little text in this 103 page book. The text is to mention a brief contextual reference to the history, people, natural environment, and country of Myanmar. There are also short bits of textual description about the orchids and how they're growing in their natural surroundings to accompany the many beautiful and unaltered color photographs of them growing wild. It is much like a poetic story. Short and concise, but yet not plagued with details.

The details are in the photographs. You can see exactly how the orchids mentioned in the book grow. It's not just pretty flower pictures without seeing what they grow on and how they grow, it's very clear what the orchids are growing on and how they grow. These plants are clearly not growing in cultivation (a rarity; most photos on the net are of orchids growing in cultivation, what a shame).

This is a great book to own both as a visual reference for orchid culture and as a coffee table book. The great part of it is, if you're too busy to read, just look at the pictures; they speak for themselves.

I highly recommend this book. If you look through this book with an open mind and open heart, you will truly gain a lot out of it.
