Far from being a dry, technical manual, this volume is a bright, welcome contrast to the run-of-the-mill-how-to books, with hundreds of photos, etchings, sidebar anecdotes, offbeat wit, and uniquely American folklore. This is a wonderfully entertaining resource book as well as a great gift for anyone from those who dabble in the garden to the greenest thumb. Photos.
