Jewels of Hawai'i:
McBryde Garden and Allerton Garden of the
National Tropical Botanical Garden
Louise Tanguay and Janet Leopold. 48 pages, soft cover. Over 90 photos, all full color. 2010. A spectacular view of NTBG's two magnificent gardens on the south shore of Kaua'i.
Excerpt: Hawai'i is known for many things, not the least of which is its warm climate and fascinating plants. Where else would a nature photographer from Quebec, Canada rather be during the chilly winter months? But when Louise Tanguay was invited to spend time at two extraordinary gardens on the southern shore of Kaua'i, she discovered more than she expected -- a tropical world that reaches far beyond the Hawaiian archipelago.
Jewels of Hawai'i is an invitation to immerse yourself in this world. With more than 90 stunning photographs, this work gives a glimpse of the diversity of plants in these breathtaking garden settings.
Available in the U.S. exclusively at the Gift Shop at NTBG's Southshore Visitors Center or online here.
