Among Flowers: A Walk in the Himalaya

Jamaica Kincaid

It was proposed to the author that she travel to any place in the world, doing anything she liked, and write a small book about the experience. The where she chose was the Himalayas, and what she chose to do was to collect the seeds of flowers for her garden. This book is the result.

Among Flowers is delightful. I'd forgotten just how much I enjoy Jamaica Kincaid's writing. She has such a great ability to share her expeiences and feelings, and she is so observant that you almost feel as if you are there. This was a quick, very enjoyable read.
