"William Bartram, the gentle Quaker botanist of Philadelphia, fell in love with the south before the American Revolution. His great book on his travels there has been challenging explorers, anthropologists, and natural historians for 214 years. These dozen essays inspired by the spirit of William Bartram prove how valuable and meaningful his work was, and still is."--John C. Hall, William Bartram re-enactor and coauthor of"Headwaters: A Journey on Alabama Rivers"
