Our Mountain Garden,' by Mrs Theodore Thomas, is one of the latest, freshest, and most enticing calls to the new life awaiting us in seed, soil and blossom, when we know enough to take it in our own hands. Indeed, as a health restorer and beauty giver, the story of this garden is largely presented by the enthusiastic gardener. It is the whole sweet story of the artist's home and pleasuring in the fair New Hampshire hills, that goes with it, and adds to it much of Its finest charm." - The St. Louie Globe Democrat.
"It is a book much resembling 'Elisabeth and Her German Garden,' both in Its spontaneity and in its unfeigned love of outdoor life, though without a trace of Elisabeth's inhospitable attitude toward those who love the more frivolous things of life. In fact, the visit of a friend who came with a wagon load of trunks full of fine clothes affords some of her cheeriest pages." - The Record-Herald, Chicago.
"Notwithstanding that there is an endless number of books about gardening published, they will continue to be welcome if they are all as entertaining as this one by Mrs. Thomas. Unless 1 am much mistaken. It will have the effect of inspiring other women to experiment in mountain gardening." - Jeannette L. Gilder in The Chicago Tribune.
"Mr. Thomas seems to deserve as much credit for the results as his wife, for he planned the garden as a recreation during the winter concert season, while Mrs. Thomas carried out the details of the floral decorations. This fact gives the book distinction. The volume also differs from most of its class, in that Mrs. Thomas frankly admits that she had had little or no experience, that the 'wise ones' she consulted could not always be relied on, and that her mountain cottage and the twenty-five acres of wilderness surrounding It became a beauty spot after the manner of Topsy's uprearing - it just growed' . . . The style is delightfully informal and sometimes humorous, and the book is well worth a perusal even by those nature lovers who are not enthusiasts on the question of gardens." - Philadelphia Ledger.
