Cover art: Celia Thaxter in Her Garden, by Childe Hassam. 'Lacy chose pieces from contemporary garden writers such as Bostonian Thalassa Cruso and Atlanta Constitution columnist Celestine Sibley, and mixed them with the giants among garden writers such as Louise Beebe Wilder and Helena Rutherfurd Ely. He arranged selections from about 50 writers by themes: color, fragrance, native plants, plant names, pests, lawns, and the urge to garden. Charles Dudley Warner's The Love of Dirt (1870) nicely summarizes why readers will spend time with this book. . . .'--Dale Luchsinger, Library Journal, 1988.
