Summary
A biography of the man who made public parks an essential part of American life. He made enormous contributions to the American landscape, believing a park was both a work of art and a necessity for urban life. Olmsted's efforts to preserve nature created an "environmental ethic" decades before the environmental movement became a force in American politics
