THOREAU'S GARDEN is an imaginary place where the plants Thoreau knew in 19th-century New England still thrive and where we can learn their history, their uses, and their charms. Well-known garden writer Peter Loewer profiles nearly 50 shrubs, trees, grasses, flowering plants, fungi, and ferns, using generous excerpts from Thoreau's journals and his own botanical illustrations and comments. Each essay mentions the use of the plant in cultivation, and conveys Thoreau's delight in the natural world and some interesting and unusual facts about the plants in his vicinity.

About the Author:

From Library Journal:

"Thoreau's Garden" is an imaginary place where the plants Thoreau knew in 19th-century New England still thrive and where we can "learn their history, their uses, and their charms." Well-known garden writer Loewer (The Evening Garden, LJ 1/93) profiles nearly 50 shrubs, trees, grasses, flowering plants, fungi, and ferns, using generous excerpts from Thoreau's journals. Each essay mentions the use of the plant in cultivation, but in most instances this information is very limited compared with coverage in other books on natural gardening. This work's strength lies instead in its conveying Thoreau's delight in the natural world and some interesting and unusual facts about the plants in his vicinity. One learns, for example, that Jack-in-the-pulpit can grow to three feet high or that barberries were once widely made into jams and jellies. Recommended for natural history collections in most libraries, especially in the eastern half of the United States.?Elizabeth Clewis Crim, Prince William P.L., Va.
