Hi! We have another book to review:
"Shadow Among Splendours: Lady Charlotte Wheeler-Cuffe's Adventures 
Among the Flowers of Burma 1897-1921" by E. Charles Nelson. I would 
suggest that someone familiar with tropical plants and flowers would be 
particularly suited to review this book.

*/Please let me know OFF-LIST if you are interested; if you have already 
reviewed a book, kindly wait awhile to let others have the opportunity.

/*Below are our Book Review guidelines. Your review will be published 
online on the GNSI website (, and _m__ay_ be featured in 
the Journal (no promises!)*/

/*thank you!


Thank you for volunteering to review a book for the GNSI!

Leslie Becker, GNSI Administrative Assistant, will send you a copy of 
the book you have offered to review. Unless otherwise indicated, we 
would appreciate receiving your review in approximately one month.

Please submit a Word or text document, max approx. 450 - 600 words, 1-2 
images, to Gail Guth ([log in to unmask] 
<mailto:[log in to unmask]>). Your review will be posted on the GNSI 
website ( <>).

We can pull images from the web (Amazon et al) etc., where it is obvious 
the publisher is providing publicity materials. If there is another 
image from the book that you would like to include, we can send you 
permissions forms to request use from the author/publisher.

We would appreciate your impression of the book, both personally and as 
an artist. Please be specific: does the content live up to the promise 
of its title? Is it well written, easy or hard to read and digest? Are 
there images, are they appropriate and well annotated?Is this a book 
your fellow GNSI-ers would enjoy reading? Why or why not?

Here are a few links to previous book reviews on the GNSI website:

You are welcomed to keep the book for your library as a thank you for 
writing this review!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
