The book has a musty'old book'odour"Anthropologist Helen Leach has written a book for every New Zealander who has ever thrust a spade into the back garden and started a vegeable plot. Whether Maori or European, the New Zealand gardener represents a blend of two ancient traditions - the first from the warm tropical islands of Polynesia, the second from the much cooler islands of Great Britain. This extraordinary study of the progress of kitchen gardening in New Zealand over the entire span of human occupation takes in these traditions and gives today's gardeners both an exciting new appreciation of the generations who have gone before and a new meaning to each of the garden tasks we perform"
