Oliver Sacks turns his attention away from the human mind to investigate a fascinating and exotic Mexican province.

Oliver Sacks is most famous for his studies of the human mind: insightful and beautifully characterised portraits of those experiencing complex neurological conditions. However, he has another scientific passion: the fern. Since childhood Oliver has been fascinated by the ability of these primitive plants to survive and adapt in many climates. Oaxaca Journal is the enthralling account of his trip, alongside a group of fellow fern enthusiasts, to the beautiful province of Oaxaca, Mexico. Bringing together Oliver’s endless curiosity about natural history and the richness of human culture with his sharp eye for detail, this book is a captivating evocation of a place, its plants, its people and its myriad wonders.

‘Light and fast-moving, unburdened by library research but filled with erudition.'
The New Yorker

'Like all the best journals, it has a rich immediacy ... the book is a rare treat.'
The Globe and Mail

'Sacks’s boundless curiosity is always a reward.'
The New York Times
