Virgin Earth

Virgin EarthTerrific, free-standing suel to the historical bestseller Earthly Joys, as John Tradescant, the Younger witnesses the English Civil War and its aftermath from his position as royal gardener. John Tradescant, the Younger has inherited his fathers unique collection of plants along with his unerring ability to nurture them. But as gardener to Charles I, he confronts an unbearable dilemma when England descends into Civil War. Fleeing from the chaos, John travels to the Royalist colony of Virginia in America. But, the virgin land is not uninhabited. Johns plant hunting brings him to live with the native people, and he learns to love and respect their way of life just as it is threatened by the colonial settlers. In the new world and the old, the established order is breaking down and every family has to find its own way of surviving. For the Tradescants, through the upheavals of the Commonwealth and the Restoration, this means consolidating their reputations as the greatest gardeners in the country.
