KIRKUS REVIEW

As simple as a technical book can be but no primer! So, don't let its attractive jacket fool you into thinking it's the Clare Leighton gift book par excellence for the customer who ""just loves gardens"". Plenty of these won't be able to understand it. However, for those capable of a little concentration the book will prove a fascinating and stimulating introduction to the whole wide ""earth's green mantle"", grass, fungi, trees, shrubs, -- in science, history and their relation to the lives of men.
