A Full Life in a Small Place and Other Essays from a Desert Garden

The University of Arizona Press

The frustrations and pleasures of gardening are evident; its implications for life are more subtle, lurking under a leaf or buried in a compost pile.

Janice Emily Bowers senses these implications, and communicates them as only a fine writer can. In A Full Life in a Small Place, she shows how backyard gardening opens up a broader appreciation of both life and living. Her observations on organic gardening inspire further meditations on nature and wildlife, and demonstrate how gardens both complicate and enrich our lives.

In their entirety, these sixteen essays ask how we shall live, and recognize that "before we can determine how, we need to find out why."

Janice Emily Bowers is a botanist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Tucson.
