“Delve into this beautiful book. You’ll come away sharing his passion for the beauty that gardens bring into our lives.” —Sigourney Weaver, environmentalist, actor, trustee of New York Botanical Garden How does an individual garden relate to the larger landscape?

In Spirit of Place, Bill Noble—a lifelong gardener, and the former director of preservation for the Garden Conservancy—helps gardeners answer these questions by sharing how they influenced the creation of his garden in Vermont. Throughout, Noble reveals that a garden is never created in a vacuum but is rather the outcome of an individual’s personal vision combined with historical and cultural forces. Sumptuously illustrated, this thoughtful look at the process of garden-making shares insights gleaned over a long career that will inspire you to create a garden rich in context, personal vision, and spirit.

Reading is my passion. I read Science Fiction, Mystery and Adventure. I have probably read over 10,000 books in my short lifetime. Since taking three years of English during High School, writing short stories which impressed my teachers, I have continued to dabble in writing a book. After I got my degree in Electrical Engineering including tutoring in related disciplines, I worked in various divisions of the department of the Navy. This got me interested in people involved in shipboard activities and how they maintain their sanity. I started writing this book in 1985, but I gave it up and being too difficult to try to put three books in one. By 2006, I decided to try again only this time I would write it as a trilogy. Now I have had several readers read it in its' various renditions and am ready to publish. Currently, I reside in downtown Seattle where I can see the mountains, the sea and the ships on the sea.
