Princeton Architectural Press, 194 pages, softcover, $31.95.
Part of an international guide series, this sensibly organized, easy-to-use guidebook, handily arranged by regions, includes concise information about 150 public Canadian gardens from coast to coast. Each section leads off with a general introduction about the province or region and a map, followed by detailed information about each featured garden's attributes and its precise location, as well as additional information about other sites of interest nearby. In a hurry? Each garden has a useful at-a-glance column of information right up front. A must for gardeners who travel.
