Illustrated, thick square octavo, pp xviii, 439, there is a bruised damage to the top of the spine which affects both the cloth and the dustwrapper, otherwise this is a very good copy. [Garden designer and historian Wade Graham offers a unique vision of the story of America in this riveting exploration of the nation’s gardens and the visionaries behind them, from Thomas Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello to Michelle Obama’s vegetable garden, Fredrick Law Olmsted’s expansive Central Park to Martha Stewart’s how-to landscaping guides. In the tradition of Mark Kurlansky, Simon Schama, and Michael Pollan, Graham delivers a sweeping social history that examines the American nation’s history from an overlooked vantage point, illuminating anew the living drama of American self-creation.]
