Another Forgotten Early Western Buddhist

Now here’s a book that somewhat curiously includes several subjects that I am quite interested in – Buddhism, travel, horticulture or at least plants, colonial Ceylon, and biographies. It’s about Reginald Farrer (1880-1920), still appreciated amongst gardening enthusiasts but virtually unknown beyond. I have heard of him because of his plant-hunting expeditions in Korea, northern Burma and the borderlands of Tibet, but I have never read his famous and still consulted best-seller My Rock Garden. But I never knew that he was also a well-informed and devote Buddhist. I have not read this, I think, first biography of him, but I plan to get it soon. You can read more about it here.
