William Bartram, the first American-born naturalist, left behind extensive notes and essays that are informative and eloquent testimonies to his explorations of the American Southeast. His descriptions of plants, animals, and human life, penned in the early years of the American Revolution, cover the region from the Smokies to Florida to the Mississippi River. In this book, Jim Kautz retraces Bartram's trail. Using stories, observations, and research, he compares the early American landscape with that of today and shares his perspective on what has happened to the Southland's people and places over the years.
