Summary
"Orphaned at a young age, Edith Stuyvesant Dresser claimed lineage from one of New York's best-known families. She grew up in New York, Newport, and Paris, and her engagement and marriage to George W. Vanderbilt was one of the most-watched events of Gilded Age society. But none of this prepared her to be mistress of Biltmore House, George's spectacular European-style estate on 125,000 isolated acres of North Carolina wilderness. Built by celebrated architect Richard Morris Hunt and set among gardens and vistas designed by the legendary landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, Biltmore Estate compromised a 175,000-square-foot chateau filled with priceless art and antiques, a charming village beyond its gates, and the site of the nation's first attempt at scientific forestry. When fortunes shifted and changing times threatened her family, her home, and her community, it was up to Edith to save Biltmore and preserve her husband's legacy."--
