In 1899, headline-grabbing New York attorney Samuel Untermyer purchased Greystone, a sizable estate on the banks of the Hudson River. By 1939, he had turned the grounds into one of the most extravagant gardens in the world. Less than three decades later, the property had fallen into neglect and disrepair. Today, Untermyer’s gardens are being restored and the splendor is slowly taking shape again. In Paradise on the Hudson, Caroline Seebohm tells the dazzling story of one man’s obsession and the role of passion in both creating and rescuing one of America’s greatest gardening achievements. Seebohm reveals surprising details of the garden in its heyday and the twisting turns of the estate’s fate. Then, coming full circle, the book highlights the heroic efforts of the Untermyer Gardens Conservancy to beautifully restore this important garden, ensuring its lasting place in American garden history.
