Ferns for American Gardens
By John T. Mickel
384 pp, 360 color photos, 50 b/w illus., 7 x 9 1/8", paperback.
Unusual in its specific focus on cold-hardy ferns, the volume is based on Mickels personal experience as a scientist and curator of ferns at the New York Botanical Garden as well as his years as a home gardener. The bulk of the book is an encyclopedic treatment of more than 400 kinds of ferns. Useful appendices, including updated source lists, make it clear why the American Horticultural Society chose this book as one of its 75 Great American Garden Books.
