In 1971 a five man expedition journeyed through north-east Nepal in search of seed and plants. For over three months the team travelled with its Sherpa cooks, guides and porters. Camping each night on a high pasture, in a ravine, bog or forest, the team discovered an array of interesting and wonderful plants and made over 400 seed collections. Roy Lancaster also describes the team's many adventures, the hilarious parties with Tibetan villagers, the birds and animals encountered, the difficulties and delights of employing and travelling with the guides and porters, as well as the resourcefulness, hospitality, charm and day-to-day life of the Nepalese.
