Reviews

Jennifer Wren Atkinson looks at the unique role that gardening plays in American culture and history by exploring garden literature over the past 150 years. She delves into a diverse range of works: down-to-earth manuals and seed catalogs, accounts of enslaved people, literary fiction and nonfiction and even science fiction.--Jeanne Maglaty "Smithsonian Magazine "
One person's garden may represent something very different to another, which is one reason this book is such an important read. Gardens reflect society, in all its inequality and irony. . . . [A]n important addition to any garden writing library.--John Yunker "EcoLit Books "
