Irish Arts Review - 4-page spread. 'Seamus O'Brien's Book, 'In the Footsteps of Augustine Henry' is a fine book. As a bonus, I very much enjoyed the section near the end which includes period photographs of legendary plantsmen contemporary with Henry - In an extraordinary period for plant collecting, Augustine Henry, together with these outstanding men, changed the face of gardening.'
