While I was writing Green Gold I was inspired by many wonderful books about botany, exploration, the history and nature of North America, plant hunters, and more.
I listed many of these references in the back of Green Gold. Some of them were quite old books or articles, and are now difficult to get hold of. Others are modern and easy to access. I’ve created a reading list on Amazon which I thought readers might enjoy browsing. All of the books in this list were inspired by the plot and stories within Green Gold.
