A satisfyingly rich and layered combination of the visual and intellectual. Readers will gain a new appreciation not only for Montgomery but also for the landscape that meant so much to her.
Anne of Green Gables is a bestselling classic, and the inspiration behind the new Netflix hit Anne with an E. Fans of both will delight in the beautiful pages of The Landscapes of Anne of Green Gables as they discover how L. M. Montgomery’s deep connection to the landscapes of Prince Edward Island inspired her to write the beloved series. From the Lake of Shining Waters and the Haunted Wood to Lover’s Lane, readers will be immersed in the real places immortalized in the novel. Using Montgomery’s journals, archives, and scrapbooks, Catherine Reid explores the many similarities between Montgomery and her unforgettable heroine, Anne Shirley. The lush package includes Montgomery’s hand-colorized photographs, the illustrations originally used in Anne of Green Gables, and contemporary and historical photography.
