bookshelves: creative-how-to, gardening, history, spiritual, travel, landscaping

Leslie takes us into the landscaping culture of Japan and gives us her hard-won account of six months. During that time in Kyoto she finds a job, makes friends and endures the rigors of working in a top landscaping crew. I'm not sure there is any other way to come to know the day in day out activities of the master gardeners.
