A few highlights:
• Before he ever dreamed of becoming a landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmsted (1822–1903) visited southern England and Wales during a month-long walking tour. A gifted writer, Olmsted recorded his impressions of the trip in this richly detailed volume, which has long been out of print. LALH is proud to announce the release of a reprint of Frederick Law Olmsted’s Walks and Talks of an American Farmer in England with a new introduction by Charles C. McLaughlin.
• In preservation news: Belle Isle, Detroit, Michigan., Camden’s Harborside Parks, Maine, and Riverview Park, Hannibal, Missouri, and how scholarly research on these important sites provides the basis for vital stewardship plans.
