A World of Gardens - John Dixon Hunt
Call Number: SB465 .H86 2012
ISBN: 9781861898807
Publication Date: 2012-04-01
A Japanese garden is immediately distinct to the eye from the traditional gardens of an English manor house, just as the manicured topiaries of Versailles contrast with the sharp cacti of the American Southwest. Though gardening is beloved the world over, the style of gardens themselves varies from region to region, determined as much by culture as climate. In this series of illustrated essays, John Dixon Hunt takes us on a world tour of different periods in the making of gardens. --Amazon.com

Building the National Parks - Linda F. McClelland; John S. Reynolds (Foreword by)
Call Number: SB482.A4 M3 1998
ISBN: 0801855829
Publication Date: 1997-11-18
Since its founding in 1916, the National Park Service has been charged with two equally important and often conflicting missions: to preserve our country’s natural wonders for future generations and to develop national parks for the appreciation and enjoyment of visitors. Recalling the era of the great lodges at Yellowstone and Yosemite, Building the National Parks tells the story of how the new bureau’s landscape designers, architects, and engineers met each of these challenges, forging a rich legacy of buildings, roads, and trails that both harmonized with the natural scenery and accommodated visitors to the parks. Their achievements - detailed for the first time here - have greatly influenced the design of state and local parks and other recreational areas across the United States.

Landmarks in the Landscape - Harvey H. Kaiser
Call Number: NA725 .K35 1997
ISBN: 0811818543
Publication Date: 1997-10-01
The romance of the West is nowhere so compelling as in its irreplaceable architecture: a silvery log cabin perched at 12,000 feet; a steeple-topped chalet beside an alpine lake. The culmination of a decade of research, Landmarks in the Landscape unveils this oft overlooked national treasure, visiting each of the Western national parks. Amidst majestic settings we discover the history of great dreams in the early West, including the struggles and triumphs of John Muir, Stephen Mather of the National Park Service, and architects Underwood and Colter. From the rain forests of the Olympic Peninsula to the sienna walls of the Grand Canyon, this comprehensive, extravagantly illustrated survey will thrill all who admire the rugged beauty of the West. --Amazon.com

National Parks - Alfred Runte
Call Number: E160 .R78 2010
ISBN: 9781589794733
Publication Date: 2010-03-16
Completely revised for its fourth edition, National Parks: The American Experience tells the highly engaging story of how Americans invented and expanded the concept of national parks. A prominent adviser to the Ken Burns Emmy Award-winning documentary, "The National Parks: America's Best Idea," Alfred Runte is renowned as the nation's leading historian on the meaning and management of these treasured lands. Lavishly illustrated with period photographs, including eight pages of color paintings, National Parks: The American Experience has never been more beautiful or profound. This remains a stirring look into the lands that define America, from Yosemite and Yellowstone to wilderness Alaska. This is how we got our parks, and yes, how we have occasionally failed them, and when doing so how we have failed ourselves. "Civilization is the problem parks solve," Runte writes. At times, the national parks may seem as imperfect as they are exceptional; the point is that they are all we will ever have. Knowing that earlier America, and planning for the new America, still demands our humility to advance the best of both. --Amazon.com
