Wade Graham Discusses AMERICAN EDEN With Stephen Colbert!

AMERICAN EDEN by Wade GrahamLast night, Wade Graham was interviewed on The Colbert Report to discuss his recently released book American Eden. This sweeping social history of our nation’s landscapes and the visionaries behind them, offers an exciting new perspective—from the garden path—on the drama of American self-creation.

In the inteview below, Graham describes how American gardens—unlike their European counterparts—represent our national identity as an expression of our liberty and freedom. Starting with Thomas Jefferson, the founder of American gardening, all the way up through the First Lady Michelle Obama, American Eden tells the story of America—and Americans—through its most significant gardens and their creators.
