He really enjoyed the book! He commented/discussed it with several other people. It is written much like a diary or journal, so I thought it might be a bit tedious to read, but he liked it and that's what counts :)

I consider Thomas Jefferson to be one of earliest masters of gardening-among other things. So any book relating to his life and works is worth owning. I thank the publishers for taking a chance and printing up these chapters for the general public to be able to view and use. He really was a master dabbler when it came to experimenting and seeking out rare and unique treasures. Can you imagine how he might have loved the availability of the internet of today?

I have become more interested in Thomas Jefferson, and this book gives interesting insights not only of Jefferson as a planter, and plantation owner, but by reading his correspondence, one gets a much closer look at a remarkable man in a very interesting time in our history. The impact of his time abroad on his gardens and on the plants Americans planted in that period are eye opening.

This is a true classic, gardening or not. I have loved reading every page. I highly recommend it to both gardener and those who do not appreciate gardening.

I'm an admirer of Jefferson and his Monticello house. This book is another "real" story about his life, his love for all plants and those he brought to the US. Very detailed. Excellent book.
