Praise for Green Sense​:

"The wild flowers of Western Australia have been visited, studied, written, painted and celebrated over decades, but never like this. They are, in all the diversity of species, habitat and history John Ryan lays out, also the world of his deeply thoughtful, thoroughly documented and trenchantly argued advocacy of bodily, multisensory engagement with plants, and engagement with language itself as a living entity."
