From the Publisher"The works and influence of Frederick Olmsted were so great that it takes a carefully edited work such as this to bring his mind, social conscience, and artistic gift into focus." Arizona Architect
"What makes Miss Sutton's collection so valuable and interesting is not just the insight it gives about the creation of many of our most pleasant urban artifacts, but also the seeming timelessness of the issues Olmsted discusses....
Olmsted's unusual understanding of the problems of urban life, and his surprisingly sophisticated perception of the prescriptions necessary for improvement, are what make this collection so instructive today." Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians
