Recommended for: gardeners
Read in July, 2003

Sarah Stein is clearly a crusty, pushy flinty kind of New England woman, who, even in a book written by herself, comes off sounding like someone you might want to talk to (especially if you had a question about native plants), but not live next door to. Still -- her tale of conversion from fancy rose-show horticulture to an obsessive love of native ecology is fascinating (earlier chronicled in the prequel to this book, _Noah's Garden_), and this book is a charming mix of narrative and concrete directions for how to go native in your own backyard.
