“From day one, it was full of visitors. There were no high fences, no locked gates. The workmen who built the park and the poorest immigrants from the tenements were as welcome as the wealthy people from the big houses.”
In this biographic picture book, we learn the story of how one man, Frederick Law Olmsted, helped build parks and other important landscapes across the early United States.
This is a text-heavy book, but perfect for budding historians and nature enthusiasts ages 4-8 years.
