A rare glimpse into the outstanding private homes and gardens of Martha's Vineyard, this classic work is expanded with new pictures and commentary. Every kind of Vineyard home, from Edgartown mansions to Gay Head beach cottages, and every kind of garden, from perennial border to wildflower meadow is featured here. On the Vineyard, the natural world and the man-made exist side by side, as the Island's houses and gardens blend harmoniously into the landscape. It is that harmony, and the balance between old houses and new, that give the Vineyard much of its unique style. This world is captured in an illuminating text by long-time Vineyard resident Polly Burroughs and hundreds of stunning, full-color photographs by Lisl Dennis. Together they reveal the rich diversity and myriad charms of the houses and gardens of Martha's Vineyard.
