Europeans weren't the first gardeners in the New World. Early 17th century colonial settlers found that Native Americans were already planting small plots near their homes. By the following century, however, New England and Virginia colonists had far outstripped such rudimentary efforts. Wade Graham's American Eden displays the continuing development of gardening in our country from their experimental tracts to those of Martha Stewart, Michelle Obama, and backyard naturalists. Copiously illustrated, this 440-page history places this private passion within the contexts of its times.
