The Zen Of Gardening In the High & Arid West: Tips, Tools, and Techniquesby David Wann
Drawing from his own considerable gardening experience and expertise, as well as leaning on the wisdom of the people he calls "The Zen Masters of the Western Garden," David Wann gathers a mix of stories, how-to advice, and simple, doable projects that are ideal for gardeners in the high and arid landscapes of the West. This covers topics such as strategic gardening (how to coax fruits and vegetables from a sun-parched garden), pest-proof planting, choosing the right varieties of edibles for the region, how to become a seed-starting maniac, a Farmer's Almanac approach to gardening (plant peas when the first cottonwood leaves appear!), as well as profiles of colorful local gardens and gardeners.

This book is a fraud! it has nothing to do with creating a Zen garden. Just a bunch of reminiscences about gardening in Colorado and hokey advice on growing plants in what should be correctly called the "Great Basin" and "Western Plains" of the U.S. I had a choice of burning it in the fireplace or putting it in the recycle.... of it went with the beer cans and old cardboard boxes.
