An Island Garden by Celia Thaxter, Childe Hassam

Houghton Mifflin originally published this classic, written by a New England poet and illustrated by one of Americas greatest impressionist painters, in 1894. Seven years ago, a slipcased facsimile gift edition introduced a new generation of readers to this American classic. Thaxter spent much of her life on the rocky, windy Isles of Shoals, off Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Her cottage was a salon for literary and artistic New Englanders, and her garden (which has recently been restored) was famous even before Childe Hassam chose it as a subject. In this book, Thaxter describes how she made a garden grow in this unlikely spot, despite having to ferry seedlings in a small boat across ten miles of stormy seas. All of Childe Hassams paintings and chapter illuminations are retained in this paperback edition. And new readers will fall in love with Celia Thaxters wonderfully readable text.
