Flowering Earth

Donald Culross Peattie (author)

A study on the origins and significance of plant life

One in a series of reissued books that have been out of print for decades, by one of the most loved naturalists of all time. In Flowering Earth Peattie explores the origin and significance of plant life with an unmatched sense of astonishment and reflection. According to the New York Times, his prose in this extraordinary work “is pervaded by a continuous sense of beauty and illuminative insight.”


“Even a diehard urbanite would likely be seduced by this extraordinary chronicle of the plant kingdom.”
