"In a land as fertile and rich with the bounty of its farm and timberlands, it is not surpising that the history of gardening and gardening movemnts in Canada is a story at once as colourful, and fascinating as that of the country itself. And at no time in the history of Canada was the subject more closely intertwined with the recreational, educational, and social fabrics of our own daily lives than in the early years of the present century. Here is the uniquely Canadian story of the development of ornamental and civic gardens, of public parks and parkways that goees hand in hand with the growth of towns and cities across the land, of Canada's "railway gardens", championed by the Canadian Pacific as a beckoning, floral advertisements of the fertility and hospitality of the Canadian west."--Dust jacket.
