THIS volume forms part of the American Nature Series: Group iv., Working with Nature. From the title one would expect to find the work severely technical and somewhat dull—“dull and useful as work clothes and garden boots,” as the author herself describes a certain chapter. But the title, though appropriate for a section of the work, is to some extent inadequate, as the book proves to be an essay on garden-making, written in a light and racy style, reminiscent of Charles Dudley Warner's delightful “My Summer in a Garden.”
