From the Publisher"Well-researched, well-photographed, and beautifully produced volume on the life and career of a real garden artist and hero."
—The New York Botanical Garden
"This well written and deeply researched book . . . will surely remain the standard work on Beatrix Farrand for years to come."
"This book brings to life the gardens of a nascent and grand American landscape style, influenced by European gardens, modified for the nouveaux riches . . . For English majors, this book does double duty as a companion to Aunt Edith [Wharton's] novels."
—The New York Times Sunday Book Review
"[Farrand] gets her due in this lovely coffee-table book filled with her meticulous plans, archival photographs and lovely illustrations."
—The Chicago Tribune
"[An] authoritative biography . . . the writing is well researched [and] refreshingly spare."
"[This book] is thoughtfully presented by a scholar who is both rigorous and intuitive . . . and it’s beautiful."
"You certainly won’t be disappointed with the new book by Judith Tankard. It’s a welcome addition to the genre, written in an easy to read style, and it covers all the important facts and facets in the life of a most fascinating woman."
