This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Great things happen in gardens. No one reading Daphne du Mauriera s Rebecca could doubt that the author herself had not lived with the huge blood red rhododendrons that the heroine first sees on arrival at Manderley. Would Charles Darwina s world-shattering On the Origin of the Species , have been quite as successful without his outdoor laboratory a the grounds of Down House in Kent? And where would Jane Austen have been if she had never seen a a walka , an ornamental lake, or a wilderness? Gardens hold a special place in many authora s lives. For Beatrix Potter, Hill Top house was made possible by the new found freedom and wealth that a literary career can bring; for Sir Walter Scott, laying out his garden at Abbotsford was a way of distracting himself from mounting debts. In this book of 25 gardens, the author examines how the poet, writer, novelist derived a creative spirit from their private garden, how they tended and enjoyed their gardens, and how they managed their outdoor space.
