As death approached, U.S. financier and self-taught horticulturist Frank Cabot revisited the creation of his private garden, known as "Les Quatre Vents." Located in Charlevoix, on the top of Mount Murray, this English-style garden of more than eight hectares is recognized throughout the world as one of the masterpieces of modern horticulture. Cabot maintained it himself for more than 50 years on the family estate on the St. Lawrence River.

His memories and reflections, as well as those of of his family and specialists, help take a look at Cabot’s artistic approach and personal philosophy.
