Title: The Garden Transformed: Prince Edward Island, 1945-1980 Author(s): Verner Smitheram, David Milne, & Satadal Dasgupta Publisher: Ragweed Press. Charlottetown: 1982 Description: Octavo. 271 pp. Softcover. Cover illustration by Nancy Lee Walker. The book examines the "rich, complex, and even revolutionary change" that has shaped PEI since the end of the Second World War. In the Introduction, the authors states "these changes have threatened the 'Garden' mythology of the province - a peaceful, pastoral vision so warmly drawn in the Anne of Green Gables stories and, before that, in historical and folkloric accounts. The garden myth has fostered a romantic notion of the 'Island way of life,' which stubbornly resists criticism."
