FIRST EDITION. "This beautifully illustrated volume traces the development of an American style of landscape design over four decades, from the naturalistic wild gardens of Warren Manning to the proto-modernist gardens of Fletcher Steele. Analyzing these against the backdrop of the cultural currents shaping larger public projects, Robin Karson weaves together a comprehensive and richly detailed picture of the artistic achievements of the period" (the publisher).
