AMERICAN GROWN: The Story of the White House Kitchen Garden and Gardens Across America

American Grown doesn't meet my expectations as a gardening or garden history book, but I admire it as a piece of propaganda.
Yes, it isn't really a "how to," but it is not supposed to be. Its lovely pictures (which drew me in), testimonials and overall message of the value of gardening, community and healthy children (and adults) are enough. Check it out.
