really liked it
Recommended to Jane by: Lora
Recommended for: Gardeners, Pollan fans, Thinkers,

This is another occasion when I wish we could do half stars, because this book wasn't *quite* a five, but it was better than a four. It makes me long for spring and the opportunities to improve my garden, get rid of more grass, and just stick my fingers into the dirt. It makes me want an old farm house on some acreage. I love the way the book is written, his descriptive passages and turns of phrase, and the interweaving of literature, philosophy, history, politics & art as they touch on nature and man's relationship to it.
