A Miscellany
Jane Billinghurst

Previous price was $21.95.

This marvelous collection of prose and images explores gardens from many angles, capturing their sensual, spiritual, aesthetic, social and even political dimensions. Individual essays from writers such as Homer, A.A. Milne, Colette, Willa Cather, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Thomas Hardy and 86 others evoke the garden in its many incarnations, sometimes lightheartedly, sometimes wittily, sometimes expressing regret or sorrow. Readers will delight in the endless variety of ways humans have carved out a spot for themselves in the natural world. A terrific read. Hard cover. 298 pages with lovely black & white and colorful illustrations.
