"There can be no better year to buy a book on this great man, and Steffie's book has an engaging personal voice that makes it more than a description of his life and works, it is about experiencing him through Steffie's enthusiasm." --Alison Levey
"With Shields book one is not only reading to learn about the remarkable working life of Capabililty Brown, but also learning to read the landscapes whose features he so decisively shaped." --Lincolnshire Life
