Picked this up at BookCloseouts.com to add to my "Books about things" bookbox.
From the cover -
THE TULIP is not a gardening book. It is the story of a flower that has made men mad. Greed, desire, anguish, devotion have all played their part in the development of the tulip from a wild flower of the asian steppes to the world-wide phenomenon it is today.
This is a lovely book, but unfortunately, I found the writing rather dry. Perhaps if I were more interested in botany, I would have found it more compelling. Lots of interesting info, but unfortunately it didn't hold my interest the way I'd hoped.
This will be going into my "Books about Things" bookbox. Hopefully another reader might get more from this than I did.
