The Four Men Who Built Biltmore


Abstract:
In 1888, George Washington Vanderbilt II traveled through western North Carolina, where he discovered the land of his dreams. There he would build the finest country home, forest, garden, and farm in America. To aid him he called upon the best architect, landscape gardener, and forester that could be found in the United States -- Hunt, Olmsted, and Pinchot, each a pioneer in his field.
