Publisher's Summary

Marta McDowell has revealed the deep connection between plants and gardening and some of our most cherished authors, including Beatrix Potter, Emily Dickinson, and Laura Ingalls Wilder. In her latest, she does the same with Frances Hodgson Burnett, the author of the classic children's book The Secret Garden.

Unearthing The Secret Garden starts by chronicling Frances Hodgson Burnett's childhood and early life, with a focus on her growing interest in gardens and her development as a writer. McDowell also shares details three gardens Hodgson Burnett created in Kent, Long Island, and Bermuda. A guide to the plants featured in The Secret Garden will delight gardeners. And in a unique addition, McDowell transcribes Hodgson Burnett's delightful essay "In the Garden", which was published shortly after her death.
