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.
This richly entwined history of the elm tree and American culture provides a masterful reading of how generations of New Englanders have planted and tended the elm, telling complex and engaging tales of both nature and nation. Anne Whiston Spirn, author of The Language of Landscape
