    A Clearing In The Distance: Frederick Law Olmsted and America in the 19th Century af Witold Rybczynski (rakerman)
    rakerman: Rybczynski's biography is much more detailed, but has the dubious technique of occasional fictional imaginings of Olmstead's thoughts. Martin's biography moves at a quicker pace and gives a sense of the broad sweep of Olmstead's life. Together they give a good picture.… (mere)

    Time Exposure: The Autobiography of William Henry Jackson af William Henry Jackson (rakerman)
    rakerman: Olmstead lived from 1822-1903, William Henry Jackson from 1843-1942. They both lived extraordinary, varied lives in the 19th Century, when today's United States was still very much a frontier in the west, and for a time at war with itself. Their paths intersect at Yosemite, whose protection owes much to the understanding of nature and political connections of Olmstead, and the amazing photographs of Jackson.… (mere)

I really enjoyed this biography of Frederick Law Olmsted. A really interesting story that takes in much of what I think of as the long 19th Century. Social change, taking up abolitionism just before the Civil War. FLO managed the United States Sanitary Commission during the Civil War (the predecessor of the Red Cross). Then, of course, there is the history of Central Park and Prospect Park. Highly recommended. ( )

A great book about a wide-ranging life. ( )

Fascinating. Since I live in a part of the country surrounded by Olmsted's work, I was eager to read this book. I was struck by the diversity and background of Olmsted that was presented in the book. At first I was a bit taken aback by the informality of the writing. It's tone is quite different from other biographies I have read. As I became more engrossed in the book and reading about Olmsted's life, I found that the author's voice matched the subject of the book and the spirit of Olmsted's life. Great read. ( )

Somehow the visitor senses that these landscapes aspire to more than splendid scenery and skillful planning, and that Olmsted asked them to perform tasks that nobody had ever previously asked of landscape. How he did this, and why, is the subject of Justin Martin's "Genius of Place: The Life of Frederick Law Olmsted."
