      I haven't found a fictional book written a Youtuber, celebrity, or athlete that I was impressed by so I didn't have very high hopes for Children of Eden. This book isn't bad by any means but it was exactly what I was expecting. It was okay. It was a nice book /5(K). Irrigated Eden). Best Book Award, Idaho Library Association (for. Irrigated Eden).

      The garden needs human cultivation: “God took the man and placed him the Garden of Eden,” says Genesis, “to till it and tend it.” In a description that spans fewer than words, the author of Genesis still finds time to explain how Eden is irrigated. Eden is neither a desert nor a wilderness. His book Irrigated Eden: The Making of an Agricultural Landscape in the American West () examines the mingling of agricultural systems and forms of resistant nature in Idaho’s Snake River Valley. Irrigated Eden received an Idaho Library Association Book Award and was co‐winner of a Charles A. Weyerhaeuser Award.
