Media reviews
The timely republication of this classic will introduce a new generation of garden lovers to America's rich cultural history.-Judith B. Tankard "A massive assemblage of blocks and scraps, both written and graphic, of the history of ornamental gardening, [Gardens of Colony and State] defined America's garden heritage ...; it is interesting to open these volumes today and find them still fresh and rich. The exuberant intelligence that went into creating them has kept them alive."-William Seale, White House Historian "The overall richness of what is discussed here, the engaging way the stories are told, and the large-scale format bind everything together and make this hefty two-volume set essential for the American garden historian."-Preservation in Print
