In November 1847 the young English botanist Joseph Hooker set sail for India. One of his objects was the study of the plant life of the Himalayas. This he accomplished, but not without enduring hardships and dangers which he vividly described in his journal and in his letters home.
During his explorations he found and collected specimens of hundreds of previously unknown species, including some of the most exotic and beautiful of rhododendrons which now thrive in parks and gardens in many parts of Britain.
