Accolades for

On the Roof of the Rocky Mountains

“While at times ominous, On the Roof of the Rocky Mountains is mostly a
celebration, filled with images showcasing the vast beauty of what is billed as the world’s highest botanical garden.”

Seth Boster
The Gazette

“The Betty Ford Alpine gardens are a staggeringly beautiful treasure . . . On
the Roof of the Rocky Mountains aims to do a lot . . . [by] educating the
reader on what the alpine regions are, the risks they face, and how botanic
gardens can be key in efforts to understand and preserve delicate alpine ecosystems.”


Josh Tychonievich
Rock Garden Quarterly

“Sarah’s descriptive writing is accompanied by captivating photography of
landscapes that few visit and even fewer inhabit . . . it’s sure to be a hit with garden lovers.”


Western Art & Architecture

“This book is a beautiful memory of a unique high alpine garden in Vail,
Colorado. It is also an important conduit into the vitally important work of
botanic gardens whose work increasingly expands far beyond the garden

walls to support, care for, and restore wild places locally, regionally, and globally.”

Sara Oldfield
Former Secretary General of Botanic Gardens Conservation International

“There are just never enough garden books, although our most recent
acquisition, On the Roof of the Rocky Mountains, is definitely among the
most beautiful. Our robust gardening community will be enthralled with the
photos and text that talk about gardens we can relate to up here in the Mountain West.”

Cathy Click, Community Engagement Director
Basalt Regional Library

“It is a gorgeous book, and I am happy to add a copy to our collection. I
know our library members will enjoy and use it for years to come!”

Barb Walter, Reference Librarian
Longmont Public Library

“On the Roof of the Rocky Mountains” is BEAUTIFUL. Our local library
received a treasure this week and I am lucky enough to be one of the first to borrow the book.”
