Julie Barrett
Parks for the People: The Life of Frederick Law Olmsted by Julie Dunlap
Story is about Frederick as he grows up in cities and loves the country and plants.
He is in a school where he stays til the summer months and he is so glad to get outside. His father then sets him up with a designer.
He had many other jobs: a year at sea, farming at the Getty estate, then his father gave him money to buy a farm.
Can't wait to visit a park that he designed that is within driving distance. Know we will be amazed...more

“Fred Olmsted sat at the edge of the stagecoach seat, chattering to his father about their trip. How exciting to see the towns and forests of western New York! Suddenly, Fred stopped talking. That roar in the distance could only be one thing. Niagara Falls!” 1 likes
