Product Overview

THOREAU''S GARDEN is an imaginary place where the plants Thoreau knew in 19th-century New England still thrive and where we can learn their history, their uses, and their charms. Well-known garden writer Peter Loewer profiles nearly 50 shrubs, trees, grasses, flowering plants, fungi, and ferns, using generous excerpts from Thoreau''s journals and his own botanical illustrations and comments. Each essay mentions the use of the plant in cultivation, and conveys Thoreau''s delight in the natural world and some interesting and unusual facts about the plants in his vicinity.
