My summer in a garden backlog studies baddeck. MY DEAR MR. FIELDS,-I did promise to write an Introduction to these charming papers but an Introduction,-what is it?-a sort of pilaster, put upon the face of a building for looks' sake, and usually flat,-very flat. Every book which interprets the secret lore of fields and gardens, every essay that brings men nearer to the understanding of the mysteries which every tree whispers, every brook murmurs, every weed, even, hints, is a contribution to the wealth and the happiness of our kind.

Charles Dudley Warner (September 12, 1829 – October 20, 1900) was an American essayist, novelist, and friend of Mark Twain, with whom he co-authored the novel The Gilded Age: A Tale of Today. Warner was born of Puritan descent in Plainfield, Massachusetts. From the ages of six to fourteen he lived in Charlemont, Massachusetts, the place and time revisited in his book Being a Boy (1877). He then moved to Cazenovia, New York, and in 1851 graduated from Hamilton College in Clinton, New York.

By Charles Dudley Warner. To joseph h. twichell. It would be unfair to hold you responsible for these light sketches of a summer trip, which are now gathered into this little volume in response to the usual demand in such cases; yet you cannot escape altogether. For it was you who first taught me to say the name Baddeck; it was you who showed me its position on the map, and a seductive letter from a home missionary on Cape Breton Island, in relation to the abundance of trout and salmon in his field of labor.

There was a splendid backlog of hickory just beginning to burn with a glow that promised to grow more fiery till long past midnight, which would have needed no apology in a loggers' camp,-not so much as the religion of which a lady (in a city which shall be nameless) said, "If you must have a religion, this one will. It is Polly's uncle, as I very well know, from the many times she has thrown him up to me, and is liable so to do at any moment. Having small expectations myself, and having wedded Polly when they were smaller, I have come to feel the full force, the crushing weight, of her lightest remark about "My Uncle in India.

This is a scanned copy of a book which is available for less money in a much nicer typeset version from the Modern Library Gardening Series. A friend accidentally bought this one as a gift for me mostly because of a flaw in Amazon's search engine. It arrived with a cover that had a picture of a mountain on it (not an interesting one at that) and a note that pages may be blurred or missing because of the scanning process. I do not appreciate the "publisher" showing so little regard for an author's work (it is in the public domain) as to sloppily scan old pages and slap any old cover on it. The book is also available for free through the Gutenberg project. I have replaced it with the ML one, which is edited by Michael Pollan and includes a nice introduction. Please honor Charles Dudley Warner by purchasing the properly published version of his work. His work was definitely worth reissuing in a lovely edition as is the case with My Summer in a Garden (Modern Library Gardening). I am buying all the books in the series as my tiny budget allows!

I didn't know until I actually had this book in my hands that it was written in the nineteenth century. Those are my favorite reads. I love getting a firsthand account of life in the past.

As a flower gardener, I'm always interested in what flowers gardeners grew in the past. Although Charles Dudley Warner writes about his veggie garden, it turns out we have a lot in common. I was delighted to read about the toad in his garden. Oh, how I wish I had one in my garden eating pests! We disagree about birds. Perhaps because he was a veggie gardener and I'm a flower gardener. He considered birds pests because they ate his produce. I like them because they consume pests.

He had to deal with some very different "pests" than most gardeners today. At least the ones who garden in my area. We don't have to worry about cows or chickens wandering into our gardens or boys stealing our produce.

The biggest difference between then and now was a visit from the President. Try to envision what it would be like to have the President visit your garden. The entourage. The Secret Service. The paparazzi. When the President visited Charles Dudley Warner's garden, he came alone. He toured the garden, enjoyed some liquid refreshment and jokingly offered the job of Head Gardener at the White House to his host.

It's anecdotes like that that draw me to books written long ago. I can understand why people say that they hate reading about history. Who wants an endless recitation of dates and wars and empires? It's so much more interesting to read about the every day lives (and gardens) of every day people (and gardeners).

MY SUMMER IN A GARDEN is a slim volume in a series of neglected gardening classics being reprinted by Modern Library, however, to suggest the subject of the book is limited to gardening is to do it a great disservice. In the guise of a week-by-week account of one summer in his garden Charles Dudley Warner waxes philosophical on religion, society, animals, schoolboys, hunters and neighbors as well as plants. Its style will feel familiar to readers of the later literary garden-musings of E.B. White and Elizabeth Von Arnim. Although Warner died in 1900 his language is remarkably fresh and the complaints and joys of gardening familiar. The side comments on women's suffrage only remind one with surprise that in spite of the similarities he was living in a very different time.
I found the book when tracking down the following Warner quote, "Regrets are idle; yet history is one long regret. Everything might have turned out so differently!" and in reading the book discovered other gems such as, "Nothing shows one who his friends are, like prosperity and ripe fruit. I had a good friend in the country, whom I almost never visited except in cherry-time. By your fruits you shall know them." It is the gentle humor and subtle wisdom of his observations that elevate Warner's book above the ordinary. Being, at present, a city dweller transplanted from childhood gardens, I found reading the book a great comfort.

This book is one of the loveliest I have ever read; so beautiful in fact that I feel anyone who never has the chance to read it is missing out on something really wonderful. It was written a very, very long time ago by a writer who had a wonderful grasp of the English language and its ability to create magic. The story flowing as smoothly as a skein of silk is told to us in such a rich, descriptive and personal way that I found myself standing there in the garden beside the author as he tended his beloved plants.

As for Calvin's tale, being a cat person, I have read many, many stories about these wonderful and beautiful animals but none that left me feeling quite as did this one, again partly because of the author's wonderful skill with words. There is so much to say about cats. Dear Calvin died a long time ago, yet my heart broke as if it were yesterday as his health slowly failed until finally the inevitable occurred. If you like simple, beautifully written true stories, you must read this.

Very humorous. Fun to read how gardening has not changed over the years. The same problems, and pleasures, existed then as now. Just a joy to read. The extra story at the end about Calvin the cat was quite a treat.
