Onward and Upward in the Gardenby Katharine S. White
Katharine White began working at The New Yorker in 1925, the year of its founding, and was an editor there for thirty-four years. Throughout and beyond those years she was also a gardener. In 1958 White wrote the first of a series of fourteen garden pieces that appeared in the magazine over the next twelve years. Onward and Upward in the Garden is the collection of these now-famous pieces. First published posthumously in 1979 with a touching introduction by the writer's husband, E. B. White, it has become an essential book for writers and gardeners in every generation. Now, in this new edition, Katharine White and her timeless prose can be read and appreciated anew.
