Front Cover
Clarkson Potter, 1999 - Gardening - 180 pages
0 Reviews
In A Man's Turf, he ranges from big questions about the origins of men's fascination with turf (does it date back to the primordial African savannas?) to the minutiae of mower design and mowing technique. He reveals the how-to turf tips of the golf-course and ball-park experts who have made a science of luxuriant lawns, takes us to the lawn mower races and the Lawn Mower Museum, and speculates with humor and eloquence on why it is that the male psyche may always remain a mystery, although of this it is certain: a lawn runs through it.
