Editorial Reviews

Alison Beck is one of Canada's bestselling garden writers. She has written or co-authored more than 30 gardening guides, many of which have become bestselling, award-winning guides. They are filled with practical advice and her passion for gardening. A passionate natural scientist with two science degrees under his belt, Ian Sheldon became distracted by the fine arts. He is now an established artist, and his shows in San Francisco, New York, across Canada and in England have firmly established his presence in the art world. Ian Sheldon has been listed in the Canadian Who's Who since 2004, and further recognition has come from his other alma mater, the University of Alberta. Combining his talents as an artist with his academic knowledge of wildlife, Ian has published dozens of nature guides that grace bookshelves across North America. Hundreds of the original entomological illustrations are now a permanent part of the university's highly reputed Bruce Peel Special Collections Library, serving as a testament to the artist's skill in yet another creative arena.
