There are few other places on earth where flowers are so all pervasive, so varied and as sumptuous as in south-west Western Australia. It is one of 39 special places in the world, named International Biodiversity Hotspots, where there have been explosions of evolution — veritable cauldrons of species making.

Award-winning photographers Stanley and Kaisa Breeden journey into this unique landscape. Part fine art photography, part travelogue, this book will delight nature lovers everywhere.
