    “In tracing the garden of Japan back to their Chinese prototypes, the book presents the first systematic account, as fascinating as it is scholarly, of Chinese garden history, and thus represents a major advance in the study of Oriental garden art in general. It also undertakes to focus Japan’s gardens into the total world picture of garden art. Again, although concentrating on the traditional gardens of Japan, the book makes another important contribution by tracing their evolution into modern landscape art, an aspect that present-day readers will particularly appreciate. Also included is much information on garden-making techniques, both old and new. The narrative itself is vivid and entertaining. Against a clarifying background of people and events, the gardens emerge as living realities, and the human intentions underlying their construction become forcefully clear. The reader, whether he visits these gardens in actuality or in spirit alone, will find himself at home in an evironment of meaningful beauty.”

    Originally published as a magazine by The Portola Institute starting in 1970 and intended for teachers and parents and subtitled ‘Resources for Our Education’, Big Rock Candy Mountain billed itself as “A Learning to Learn Catalog”, directly inspired by the Whole Earth Catalog. It shared the same publisher and borrowed its format, but featured more in-depth articles .Like the Whole Earth Catalog, its content is divided into sections, among them ‘Process Learning’, ‘Educational Environments’, and ‘Self Discovery’, each one listing books, educational tools and other products, along with details of their availability (some of them, unlike the Whole Earth Catalog, were sold directly by BRCM mail order. The nonprofit Portola Institute was founded in Menlo Park in 1966 by Dick Raymond, Bob Albrecht and others as an educational forum and helped develop a number of influential Bay Area organisations and publications, including Albrecht’s People’s Computer Company, the Whole Earth Catalog and Big Rock Candy Mountain
