From the Publisher"Allen's conclusions are insightful, and the appendices, notes, bibliography, and index testify to the depth of the research and attention given to the book. Allen's style is accessible and engaging, ensuring that this well-written book will have a place among the canon of historic preservation philosophy as a valuable, in-depth look at what, in the late twentieth century, justified the establishment of yet another public historic site with a landscape focus."

"[Grayson's] tight focus on Olmsted National Historic Site offers a revealing tale of a small park that made it, despite formidable challenges."
