Rescuing Eden presents 30 American gardens that are particularly distinctive in the stories of their creation and their “rescue” for the enjoyment and appreciation of future generations.  Ranging from the historic gardens on Alcatraz Island in the San Francisco Bay to Peckerwood Garden outside Houston, these gardens represent a range of distinctive styles and help tell the story of gardening in America.  Caroline Seebohm is a design historian and biographer, whose books include Boca Rococo, a biography of Palm beach architect Addison Mizner, as well as biographies of Marietta Tree, Conde Nast, and Florida sculptor Ann Norton.

Curtice Taylor is a well-known landscape and garden photographer whose work is widely published.

The book will be available for sale at the event.
