Description
"Whether it's the Emerald Necklace in Boston, Central Park in New York City, the Capitol Grounds in Washington, D.C., or countless other beautiful urban parks in cities across America, we have Frederick Law Olmsted to thank for his magnificent creative vision and achievements. He understood the link between cultivating nature and civilizing humanity. He invented the art of landscaping and was responsible for bringing public green space into our urban centers. In this important book, David Grayson Allen expertly analyzes the intensive modern effort championed by the Olmsted National Historical Site to encourage landscape preservation nationwide and breathe new life into Olmsted's brilliant legacy for future generations."—Edward M. Kennedy
