    Summary: 
    "Ferruccio Vitale is America's forgotten landscape architect. Though his works such as Skylands and Longwood Gardens are well known, his name has been largely eclipsed by those of his contemporaries, the Olmsted Brothers. Yet Vitale's influence on the direction of modern landscape design and his promotion of landscape architecture as a profession make his contribution arguably more significant. His unique rationale designs and guiding philosophy, which challenged the then-dominant naturalesque mode of landscape architecture, have influenced generations of followers." "Ferruccio Vitale: Landscape Architect of the Country Place Era tours over 40 of the designer's masterworks, photographed by the best landscape photographers of the time, including Samuel Gottscho. It recounts the story of a life influenced by social clubs, professional connections, and immigrant dreams, and of a life's work that includes some of the lesser known yet greatest landscapes of the twentieth century."--BOOK JACKET.
