More than eight years ago, Harper's editor Michael Pollan bought an old Connecticut dairy farm. He planted a garden and adopted Thoreau's viewpoint: Do not impose your will upon the wilderness, the woodchucks or the weeds. Here is his timely meditation and social history on man's relationship with nature and the environment.
"I know no book on gardening that is quite as illuminating and fascinating as this one."
"As a nongardener, I never expected to stay up late and laugh out loud at a book like this. But I've been permanently Pollan-ated."
Allen Lacy, New York Times Book Review
