This should be the primer for garden coffee-table books.This book features gorgeous photos, a terrific representation of every area of the Adirondacks, interesting stories, and history on the gardens. I especially appreciated the background given for each garden, and the nice balance between historic gardens, personal gardens, and publics areas. I don't often rave, but this is just about everything I could want in a garden photo book.
Very beautiful and informative. Photo's are superb. Text is a well researched and fascinating history of gardens old and new. Keen gardener's eye and knowledge is evident throughout.
Lovely photographs and well-written. Provides good ideas for gardeners to use in developing new landscaping and planting ideas.
A nice book filled with useful information. A perfect gift for a Master Gardener.
Good images. The bushes and plants are generalliy identified, which makes it helpful for the North a Country seasonal gardener.
