Synopsis: When Columbus first set foot on a lushly overgrown, garden-like island, did he imagine the vastness and variety of the land in the continent on whose threshold he stood? This land has been host to countless gardens since. With text essays by many of America's foremost garden writers this book celebrates gardens and gardening - from the agriculture of the native Americans and the first European settlers to the elegant and sophisticated landscape design of the 20th century.
From Library Journal:
Punch, Head Librarian of the venerable Massachusetts Horticultural Society, has assembled 16 essays written by some of the country's leading horticultural writers, landscape architects, and garden historians. Topics covered range from the kitchen gardens of 17th-century New England to Southern parterre gardens and the California gardens of Thomas Church. Focusing on both the people and the plants that have shaped gardening in the United States, the essays document the history of sweet peas, greenhouse, and victory gardens, as well as the influence of Frederick Law Olmsted and Jens Jensen on the American landscape. The text, informative and enjoyable in its own right, is greatly enhanced by the variety and quality of the illustrations. Although not a substitute for Ulysses P. Hedrick's scholarly A History of Horticulture in America to 1860 (1950), this work will find a wider audience with not only gardeners but with anyone interested in American culture and history. Highly recommended for most collections.
