      Frederick Law Olmsted was an American landscape architect, often regarded as father of American landscape architecture for his role in the designing of many well-known urban parks including Prospect Park and Central Park in New York City, as well as Elm Park in Worcester, Massachusetts. I wrote a review for this to be published on Nonfiction4Life so I will refrain from speaking too much about this book, but I will say Frederick Law Olmsted, the "father of landscape architecture," was not only largely responsible for the design and look of New York City's Central Park, but also an exceptionally skilled writer and commentator on nineteenth-century American life/5.
