Title Stories of Florida’s Orchid Obsession: Susan Orlean’s The Orchid Thief and Craig Pittman’s The Scent of Scandal
 
Creator Harding, John David; Saint Leo University
 
Subject

 
Description Many of Florida’s native orchids, a onetime abundant and valuable Florida treasure, have been lost in light of overharvesting, habitat loss, and global climate change. Despite its diminishing presence in the Florida wild, the orchid still retains a form of cultural capital in the imaginations of laypeople, orchid enthusiasts, and writers alike, two of whom, Susan Orlean and Craig Pittman, have composed comparable yet nuanced accounts of Florida’s orchid obsession.
