The Wisconsin Historical Society Press announces that "Putting Down Roots: Gardening Insights from Wisconsin's Early Settlers" by Old World Wisconsin historical gardener Marcia Carmichael was one of only five books selected for the American Horticultural Society's annual Book Award.
Each year, the American Horticultural Society recognizes outstanding gardening books published in North America with its annual Book Award. Nominated books are judged by the AHS Book Award Committee on qualities such as writing style, authority, accuracy, and physical quality.
The judges' comments included: "an outstanding template for what other regionally oriented, historical gardening books should aspire to;" "[a] fascinating window into the courage, resourcefulness, and adaptability of our immigrant past;" and "it is both fun to read and authoritative, with interesting illustrations, terrific recipes, and informative notes," according to a news release from the Wisconsin Historical Society Press.
