'“Adam Nicolson writes popular books as popular books used to be, a breeze rather than a scholarly sweat, but humanely erudite, elegantly written, passionately felt . . . and his excitement is contagious.” —James Wood, The New Yorker   “Nicolson’s love of language is equal to his love of the land, and his poetic prose evokes the richness of the landscape he strives to save.” —Publishers Weekly   “To see Vita Sackville-West’s legendary garden return to life as an edible landscape fills me with hope. Adam Nicolson’s determination to restore a working farm in complete harmony with one of the world’s most famous and beautiful gardens is faithful not only to the memory of his family but also to the memory of the land itself. . . . It is clear that like his famous grandmother, Nicolson is a scribe of The Land.” —Alice Waters, founder of Chez Panisse restaurant and author of The Art of Simple Food'
