What do gardens say about the people who designed them? Wade Graham's American Eden: From Monticello to Central Park to Our Backyards: What Our Gardens Tell Us About Who We Are is a history of American gardens, particularly those of the upper class and those in public spaces. This carefully researched book shows not only photographs, but the actual plans of many famous and fabulous gardens. Does the person with a formal garden lead a life different than the person with a looser style garden? Suggested for those who enjoy gardening, architecture, landscaping and social history.
