From the book:
"Inspired by her own family's immigrant history, master gardener Patrica Klindienst traveled the country, gathering stories of urban, suburban, and rural gardens created by people rarely presented in American gardening books: Native Americans, immigrants from across Asia and Europe, and ethnic peoples whose ancestors were here long before oru national boundaries were drawn. In The Earth knows my Name, Klindienst writes about the beautiful yards and fields she discovered, each one an island of hope, offering us a model - on a sustainable scale- of a truly resotrative ecology."Patricia Klindienst is a master gardener and an award-winning writing teacher. She lives and gardens in Guilford, Connecticut. This is her first book.
