  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
From the back cover

Early and late frosts, arctic winds, and inhospitable terrain are just a few of the obstacles facing those who garden in the icebox region of the United States and Canada. Lewis Hill has spent a lifetime in northern Vermont, and is undaunted by the challenges of weather and climate. his sytem for how to garden more and better in teh time that you do have is covered in this extensive 308-page guide.

Cold-Climate Gardening has much information that will prove invaluable to northern gardeners: how to grow food, how to landscape, techniques to employ that will protect vulnerable plantings, how to warm up the soil earlier, and which species are appropriate to your area. Not just for those who live in the snow belt, this book will also be useful to those who garden in microclimates (such as deep valleys or hillsides) or those who want to extend their gardening season in any climate. Horticulture has deemed it "an immensely useful book...written with style, wit and clarity.." You will garner advice, tips, guidance, and encouragement necessary to have a successful gardening season in spite of Mother Nature's ravages.

This book is a well-written "how to" book that deals with growing in short seasons. I like the step by step, practical guidelines.
