Over the course of four decades, Marjorie Cautley (1891-1954) became the first woman landscape architect to design state parks, plan the landscape for a public housing project, and teach in a university planning department. Sarah Allaback's absorbing biography illuminates how Cautley transcended both cultural and professional boundaries during one of the most tumultuous eras in American history-the advent of the automobile-to create places for people to lead healthy, vital lives.
