You will enjoy reading and listening to wonderful stories of an amazing life, blessed with the the ability to discover and then hybridize cymbidum and oncidum orchids into what has become some of the most beautiful flowers in the world.
Challenged with the desire to do something no other orchid enthursiast has done to date, Milton Carpenter set off on a journey to create a truly warmth-tolerant Cymbidium hybrid that would bloom in warm OR cold temperatures. Little did he know that this desire would send him on a quest that has covered over 60 countries and five decades of near-death experiences, impenetrable jungles, charging lions, circling elephants, Florida hurricanes and experiencing wondrous new friendships worldwide.
Through it all, Milton Carpenter has created more than 500 new orchid hybrids and is a world-renowned speaker, photographer and author.
From the Hand of God to the Miracles of Orchids is part autobiography, part highlights of Everglades Orchids breeding program, and part vignettes of orchid friends and others. This signed hardcover copy comes with a CD featuring Carpenter family music and a DVD featuring several of Milton Carpenter's expeditions to different countries throughout the world.
