520    John Laroche, an obsessed Florida plant dealer, willing to
       go to any lengths to steal rare and protected wild orchids
       and clone them and all for a tidy profit. But the morality
       of Laroche's actions do not drive the narrative of 
       Orleans' strange, compelling, and hilarious book. She is 
       much more interested in the spectacle this unusual man 
       creates through his actions, including one of the oddest 
       legal controversies in recent memory, which brought 
       together environmentalists, Native American activists, and
       devoted orchid collectors. She follows Laroche deep into 
       Florida's swamps, tapping into not only the psyche of the 
       deeply opinionated Laroche but also the wider subculture 
       of orchid collectors, including aristocrats, fanatics, and
       smugglers whose obsession with plants is all-consuming. 
       Orlean portrays the weirdness of it all in wonderful 
       detail, but, ultimately, the book is primarily about 
       passion itself and the amazing lengths to which people 
       will go to gratify it
