Amazon has wrong number of pages listed - it was nice to see almost 300 pages in this book.
Also not mentioned in description here is the audio CD with sounds of the Caribbean nature included with this book - a really nice touch, designed as a background ambiance for browsing the book.
I find it indeed a "twin" to the Tropical Homes book, with similarly fantastic photography, bi-lingual English and French text, engaging and passionate way of narration, and clearly the same concept behind selecting all gardens. The selection and quality of print is dazzling, and while it is not a botanical guide to tropical species, I found some interesting notes in that aspect too. The "bonus" chapter on flower arrangement is a nice addition.
It definitely is one of the most impressive coffee table books I have. And - thanks to it - now I know which gardens are a "must see" when I return to the Caribbean again!
