The Backyard Parables
Lessons on Gardening, and LifeLarge Print - 2013
Margaret Roach has harvested thirty years of backyard parables - deceptively simple, instructive stories from a life spent digging ever deeper - and distilled them in this memoir. After ruminating on the bigger picture in And I Shall Have Some Peace There, Roach returns to the garden and uses her fundamental understanding of the natural world, philosophy, and life to explore the ways that gardening saved and instructed her.
