I'm so excited to share the official paperback cover for my science memoir, The Plant Hunter! This photo was taken by fabulous Emory photographer, Ann Watson, during a field expedition with my students at The Jones Center at Ichauway. In the background, you may spot the tall long-leaf pines and a gorgeous blanket of ferns in the ground cover. I'm holding medicinal Rudbeckia (black-eyed Susan), in hand. The paperback will be out on June 14, 2022 with a list price of $18. Links to pre-order are available HERE.
