520    We are a democracy of gardeners yet, with few exceptions, 
       the garden is presented as the province of the privileged.
       Garden writing tends to exclude the stories of the ethnic 
       peoples who have shaped our landscape for centuries--the 
       idea of the garden has been stripped of its cultural 
       weight. Gardener and writing teacher Klindienst speaks 
       directly to this gap in our understanding, exploring the 
       deeper implications of what it means to cultivate a garden
       and to grow one's own food. The fifteen gardens she 
       presents have all been fashioned by people usually thought
       of as other Americans: Native Americans, immigrants, and 
       ethnic peoples who were here long before our national 
       boundaries were drawn. All of these gardeners straddle two
       cultures--mainstream America and their culture of origin. 
       Their stewardship of the land is an expression of the 
       desire to preserve their heritage against all that 
       threatens it.--From publisher description.
