Soil: The Story of a Black Mother’s Garden by Camille T. Dungy

I was captivated by this beautiful and seminal work in which poet and scholar Camille Dungy speaks of her experience as a Black woman in the American West cultivating her Colorado prairie garden, and about the perils of a homogenized society. Dungy writes gracefully about the natural world—from flowers to bunnies to birds—while weaving in motherhood, intersectionality, history, and more. This is nature writing at its most welcoming, challenging, and powerful. I won’t soon forget this book.  —S.B.

Building: A Carpenter’s Notes on Life & the Art of Good Work by Mark Ellison

Mark Ellison works in luxury construction and has been called the best carpenter in New York, but he started off very humbly, working paycheck-to-paycheck and learning skills—and life lessons—along the way. Over the past 40 years, he has worked on iconic spaces and executed projects whose calculations were mathematically impossible. Building, his peek behind the industry curtain, is packed with stories of high–stakes projects and a demanding clientele, leading many to call it the Kitchen Confidential of architecture; but what I found most exciting was the insight into an artist and problem solver who is drawn to projects for their potential for magic.  —S.B.

American Roots by Nick McCullough

Home gardeners will find so much to love in this beautiful new book, which profiles 20 gardens (and the people who designed them) across America. From those on vast amounts of land to those in small spaces, each modern home garden in the book is thoughtfully designed and tended to, whether filled with flowers, vegetables, potted plants, or any number of combinations. I found so many ideas and much inspiration (especially from the profile of Keith Robinson’s garden), but also just truly enjoyed reading about people who love gardening as much as I do.
