In the guise of a week-by-week account of one summer in his garden Charles Dudley Warner waxes philosophical on religion, society, animals, schoolboys, hunters and neighbors as well as plants.

Its style will feel familiar to readers of the later literary garden-musings of E.B. White and Elizabeth Von Arnim. Although Warner died in 1900 his language is remarkably fresh and the complaints and joys of gardening familiar.

The side comments on womens suffrage only remind one with surprise that in spite of the similarities he was living in a very different time.I found the book when tracking down the following Warner quote, Regrets are idle- yet history is one long regret. Everything might have turned out so differently! and in reading the book discovered other gems such as, Nothing shows one who his friends are, like prosperity and ripe fruit.

I had a good friend in the country, whom I almost never visited except in cherry-time. By your fruits you shall know them. It is the gentle humor and subtle wisdom of his observations that elevate Warners book above the ordinary. Being, at present, a city dweller transplanted from childhood gardens, I found reading the book a great comfort.Product descriptionIf you HATE the book with strange characters, introduced typographical errors, and jumbled words, this book is for you.We dont use OCRd book technology (Optical character recognition, usually abbreviated to OCR, is the mechanical or electronic translation of scanned images of handwritten, typewritten or printed text into machine-encoded text) to make the kindle version but we bring to you by THE SCANNING OR PHOTOGRAPH PROCESS.
