These essays first appeared in the original publication Keywords in American Landscape Design (Yale University Press, 2010) from which this site originated. The investigation into the history of early American landscape design has continued with the advantage of the digital platform and the addition of approximately one hundred individual pages dedicated to People and to Places to the original one hundred Keywords pages. These introductory essays remain a fundamental contribution to the project with insight and guidance on navigating its content.
