Publisher Description:

"Delve into this beautiful book. You'll come away sharing his passion for the beauty that gardens bring into our lives." --Sigourney Weaver, environmentalist, actor, trustee of New York Botanical Garden

How does an individual garden relate to the larger landscape? How does it connect to the natural and cultural environment? Does it evoke a sense of place? In Spirit of Place, Bill Noble--a lifelong gardener, and the former director of preservation for the Garden Conservancy--helps gardeners answer these questions by sharing how they influenced the creation of his garden in Vermont.

Throughout, Noble reveals that a garden is never created in a vacuum but is rather the outcome of an individual's personal vision combined with historical and cultural forces. Sumptuously illustrated, this thoughtful look at the process of garden-making shares insights gleaned over a long career that will inspire you to create a garden rich in context, personal vision, and spirit.
