Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Published to rave reviews in 1993, Noah's Garden shows us how our landscape style of neat yards and gardens has devastated suburban ecology, wiping out entire communities of plants and animals by stripping bare their habitats and destroying their food supplies. When Stein realized what her intensive efforts at making a traditional garden had done, she set out to "ungarden." Her book interweaves an account of her efforts with an explanation of the ecology of gardens. Noah's Garden has become the bible of the new environmental gardening movement, and the author is one of its most popular spokespersons.

About the Author

Sara Stein is the author of many books, including My Weeds, The Evolution Book, The Science Book, and, of course, Noah's Garden. She lives in Pound Ridge, New York.
