“As you turn the pages you will start to imagine that you are sprawled out in the meadow of your dreams, the grasses swooshing over your head. . . . It’s not every book that lifts you from your reading nook and opens wide the vista of the heavens.” —Chicago Tribune
“If you’ve ever thought of abandoning your lawn but haven’t yet, The American Meadow Garden will surely inspire you to action. . . . Take a long look at your lawn mower, and then go buy this book.” —American Gardener
