Green Gold feature in Scottish Forestry

I was delighted to have my article about the life of Scottish plant hunter John Jeffrey, and my recently published fictional biography entitled Green Gold, featured in the Spring/Summer edition of Scottish Forestry, the journal of the Royal Scottish Forestry Society.

The article highlights the life of Scotsman John Jeffrey, his employment by the Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (RBGE), and the wealthy Scottish investors who supported his expedition to North America.

In the article, I was also able to promote the exhibition currently open at RBGE, which runs until end June, and which includes free entry.
