A friend, a master gardener who lives in Alaska recommend I purchase this book even though I live nowhere near Alaska. I'm so glad she had me get it! The book is full of valuable concepts that can be applied anywhere.

This book not only captures the creation of gardening in Alaska but is a photographic journey through this majestic state. It is the perfect book for gardeners as well as any one who appreciates the beauty of nature regardless as to where you live in the United States or the world for that matter. "There's a Moose in my Garden" can also be the perfect gift as a "coffee table" book to inspire conversation for those who appreciate great photography and a narrative which inspires the explorer in all of us! A MUST READ and a great book which will transport you to Alaska from your very own living room or library!

This is the quintessential book on gardening, not just in Alaska and the Far North. Brenda Adams not only provides a wealth of knowledge, inspiration, and guidance, she also provides an extremely compelling, humorous and vibrant read. A definite gift for my gardening friends, and Alaskan visitors. Buy it! Read it! You will enjoy it!

What a helpful book for cold climate gardeners anywhere! My sister-in-law in Colorado loves it. From soil to design to plant selection to protection, Brenda gives great practical advice. Whether you are a novice or more experienced, you will enjoy this book a great deal.

I am an "intermediate" gardener and most books I find are either too basic or too full of professional jargon. Brenda's book is wonderfully conversational and full of wonderful insights.She really walked me through the WHY of designing my garden. I am going to save so much time and disappointment (e.g. dead plants) just by following her steps to really think through what it is I want to achieve in my garden and to take the practical steps for its success.The photos are visually stunning. (Summer vacation to Alaska? Yes, please!) I also loved the attention to the fourth dimension of a garden-- time. I can really see how I can paint different pictures in the same flower bed by staggering the peak blooming time of its inhabitants. So excited to get digging!!

Loved it. Easy to read and even easier to understand with lots of clever ideas.Content not at all limited to Alaska but applicable to gardens large and small anywhere.Granted Alaska scenery as backdrop breathtaking.
