Annotation At thirty-five, Leslie Buck became the first American woman to learn pruning from one of the most storied landscaping companies in Kyoto. During her apprenticeship in Japan, she learns that the best gardens look so natural they appear untouched by human hands, even though her crew spends hours meticulously cleaning every pebble in the streams. She is taught how to bring nature's essence into a garden scene, how to design with native plants, and how to subtly direct a visitor through a landscape. But she also learns how to balance strength with grace, seriousness with humor, and technique with heart. 2017. Adult.
