Some brief overview of this book

From Frederick Law Olmsted to Richard Neutra, Michelle Obama to our neighbors, Americans throughout history have revealed themselves in the gardens they create. Melding biography, history, and cultural commentary, American Eden presents a dynamic, sweeping, one-of-a-kind look at this countrys landscapes and the visionaries behind them.

Monticellos gardens helped Jefferson reconcile his feelings about slavery. Edith Whartons gardens made her feel more European. Isamu Noguchis and Robert Smithsons experiments reinvigorated the age-old exchange between art and the garden. Manhattans High Line park, reclaimed from freight train tracks, reimagined an urban landscape.

Moving deftly through time and place across Americas diverse landscapes—from Revolutionary-era Virginia to turn-of-the-century Chicago to 1960s suburban California—and featuring an equally diverse cast of landscape-makers, whether artists, architects, housewives, robber barons, politicians, or dreamers, Wade Graham vividly unfolds the larger cultural history through more personal dramas.

Beautifully illustrated, American Eden is at once a different kind of garden book and a different kind of American history, one that offers a compelling, untold story that mirrors and illuminates our nations invention—and constant reinvention—of itself.
