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. Ms. Leighton covers the colonization of North America from its earliest years. She references primary documentary sources as well as scholarly works.

It will be an important addition to the reference library of anyone interested in early agriculture, historic gardening, and especially those who are involved in the management of historic gardens.
