"Shaping the American Landscape does what no other single tome has before –it  pins together a cohesive framework illuminating the community of people who have formed and continue to influence our designed landscapes. Our gardens and parks may reveal more about American history and consciousness than any other texts, so this thoughtful celebration of the people who created them is especially welcome."

- Sarah Kinbar, Editor-in-Chief, Garden Design
