“Nancy Power presents a beautiful, sweeping view of California’s gardens, but it is Power’s own understanding of the important human element- ‘gardens are to be lived in’ - that provides the insights and the underlying enrichment.” - Peggy Kennedy, Editor, House Beautiful

“The scope of The Gardens of California is terrific- the plant information is detailed and the historical references are very thorough.  I have always wanted to see the wonderful gardens of California, and now Nancy Power has granted me that wish.” - Martha Stewart
