The Gardens of Mackinac Island
by Jack Barnwell
An insider's view into Mackinac's gardens. Mackinac Island: For many, the name itself draws up visions of horses, Victorian cottages and streets without automobiles. However, any memorable imagery of the island is incomplete without an understanding of the magic at its heart: the gardens. Mackinac's rock-strewn soil grows some of the most spectacular gardens in the world. The story of the unique botanical harmony at play is told within the pages of "The Gardens of Mackinac Island."
