The Undaunted Garden not only has invalueable information, plant names etc., but it was also a story. A lot (most) garden referances and books are dry, encyclopedia type writings. Lauren Springer Ogden used a story base for this and her other books that make the reading so much more enjoyable. It is my favorite book, and I have an extensive gardening library. The photography, done by the artist herself, is exquisite. Whenever I refer to The Undaunted Garden, which is often, I am always amazed at how the photos look new each time. To me, this is the mark of a gifted photographer. I live in a challenging climate, along with a difficult site. Her book inspires me. I am able to envision what my 1/3 acre could be whe all the ground is finally covered. I recommend this book to anyone, harsh climate or not, just for the sheer enjoyment.

I garden in Northern Nevada, a climate similar to, but drier than Lauren Springer's Colorado. Still, her book gave me lots of ideas to try, and most of them have been very successful. Reading the book, I'd guess that it would have been equally useful when I lived in Northeastern Kansas.

This is an excellent book. Although it was written for gardeners in the mountains of Colorado, it has extensive information for any gardener who has to deal with extreme weather changes or dry clay soil. Lauren Springer's enthusiasm and abundant knowledge make it one of my favorite books and one I refer to often. The photographs are beautiful. This book makes you want to run right out and try all kinds of new plants.
