Clearings: Six Colonial Gardeners And Their Landscapes

When Europeans settled the Australian colonies they saw beyond the wilderness of the bush to the possibilities of an ideal landscape. But first the land had to be cleared. And to make a clearing in the colonies was to erase what existed in nature and replace it with something new. A beautiful illustrated collection of six colonial gardeners and their vision of the Australian landscape.
