An engaging tribute to America's grand era of private estate gardens and their illustrious owners, this book sweeps across the country to present over 500 of the nation's most exquisite gardens and the people who built them. In addition to a wealth of horticultural details, we learn of the garden-maker's flamboyant private and public lives--of the gossip, parties, dreams, politics, and economic one-upmanship of the period. 280 illustrations, 130 in full color.
