William Bartram's Big Adventure


Author(s):
Abstract:
William Bartram, son of the famous royal botanist, John Bartram, left Philadelphia in 1773, on a four-year botanizing expedition across the Southeast. When he returned in 1777, he had categorized over 100 plants and 215 birds and had written an incomparable travel epic. The University of Georgia Press has recently reissued the narrative.
