An authoritative and superbly illustrated celebration of the great gardens of the United States and Canada. The gardens chosen for this book range from eighteenth-century landscape gardens such as Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, through twentieth-century creations such as the lakeside garden at Innisfree in New York State and dramatic Naumkeag in Massachusetts to the work of exciting new designers such as Topher Delaney in San Francisco and Martha Schwartz in New Mexico. Many of the gardens are open to the public, so readers can actually visit them. The others, newer domestic gardens, offer instead glimpses into a glamorous world of luxurious outdoor living. Three hundred stunning color photographs by renowned garden photographer Andrea Jones accompany author Tim Richardson’s insightful text. Hardback, 304 pages.
