500    Contains a reader's companion including an interview with 
       the author and topics for reading group discussion 
504    Includes bibliographical references 
520    From Florida's swamps to its courtrooms, the New Yorker 
       writer follows one deeply eccentric and oddly attractive 
       man's possibly criminal pursuit of an endangered flower. 
       Determined to clone the rare ghost orchid, Polyrrhiza 
       lindenii, John Laroche leads Orlean on an unforgettable 
       tour of America's strange flower-selling subculture, along
       with the Seminole Indians who help him and the forces of 
       justice who fight him. In the end, Orlean -- and the 
       reader -- will have more respect for underdog 
       determination and a powerful new definition of passion
