I have just recently discovered Mitchell and I love his sense of humor about gardening and gardeners. You have to be aware that some of the specific plants he mentions are no longer widely available, but his expertise and attitude are timeless!
I was captivated by Ambrose's account of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. His writing style is direct, lively, and very descriptive. Ambrose made the trip come alive for me. He has spent years walking the path, and his ability to engage the reader in every aspect of this ordeal is marvelous.
Every gardener will enjoy to learn and laugh with this book. Great wit and knowledge.

This is a collection of articles written several decades ago and focuses more on gardening in the southeast US. I ordered this because my book club was reading it, but it didn't capture my interest. Henry Miller had many wry and humorous comments about gardening which any avid gardener could relate to, but some chapter went on and on about different varieties of plants we don't even grow in my area. If you love peonies and want to read pages extolling the virtues of different varieties, maybe you would like the book more.
Good information with traces of cheer and comedy. I could relate to it all. The tip of always thinking of a hole the size of a bushel basket for planting a shrub or a tree was very helpful.
if you read only one garden book, read Henry
I always loved Henry when he was in the Washington Post and I have enjoyed several of his other collections. This one was just okay - sometimes repetitive.
