Socotra is an archipelago located in the Indian Ocean, 380 kilometres south of the Arabian Peninsula. It is home to 300 of the world's strangest and most beautiful endemic plant species. The landscape is baron and mysterious: an other-worldly dreamscape, bursting with diversity and personality. Unfortunately, I have only gleaned this impression from a virtual tour on the internet, because as of 2015, all flights to Socotra have been cancelled due to civil unrest in Saudi Arabia.

This ancient place resonates very deeply with me; its gnarled, twisted nature appearing uncannily familiar. It feels as if these eccentric creatures have fallen from my own mind and set up home in physical reality. This book is a homage, an expression of my admiration for Socotra. I hope to one day venture to this fascinating place and experience its wonders first hand.
