From the Inside Flap:

"Encyclopedic in content, poetic in vision, this book is an indispensable addition to the library of anyone interested in the history of gardens in this region, or, for that matter, American gardening as a whole."
—The Philadelphia Inquirer

"Philadelphia and its environs are often described as a mecca for American gardens, so it's only fitting that Bill Klein has written an eloquent yet finely detailed account of the horticultural wonders of this area."
—Jane G. Pepper, President, Pennsylvania Horticultural Museum
