About the Book
Frederick Law Olmsted Sr., F.L. Olmsted Jr., John D. Olmsted, all greats in the areas of Landscape Architecture, park planning, and land conservation. Following my father John Olmsted's death I found myself in limbo, wondering what to do next, and looking at where I'd been. Instead I went back, and began looking at my Olmsted lineage, and wondering what would my contribution be. In the summer of 2016 I put wheels to that question and set off around the U.S. on an epic journey of discovery, adventure, and soul refreshment. My steed? A 1966 Chrysler Convertible in the spirit of John Steinbeck. On these pages is what I found, what I heard, what I felt, and what I saw. Enjoy ::
