Description:  Ann Leighton (1902-1985) was the professional name of  Isadore Leighton Luce Smith. She planted and tended seventeenth century period gardens both personally and professionally. Her books are extremely well researched, well documented, yet remain very readable to this day. Focusing on the gardens of early New England settlers, this volume highlights the plants the early settlers depended upon for their household purposes from food to drinks to medicines.

For anyone interested in the origins of gardening in the United States, in history, or in early agriculture, this book will become one of your treasures.
