About this book

The American elm, elegant and highly adaptable, was an essential feature of America's cultural landscape for more than a century. This illustrated text traces the elm's transformation from a fast-growing weed into a regional and national icon, and shows how Elm Street satisfied America's quest for a pastoral urbanism imagined since the time of Jefferson.
