Early American Naturalists: Exploring the American West 1804-1900by John Moring
Synopses & Reviews
This history records the lives, adventures, and discoveries of pioneering American naturalists and conservationists — including Lewis and Clark, Thomas Say, Martha Maxwell, John James Audubon, and John Muir — who wandered purposefully through the fresh American wilderness with pen and ink in hand to sketch and to write about the natural wonders that they encountered. Early American Naturalists offers a gripping celebration of these unique and eloquent trailblazers as they boldly navigate and document the then-untrammeled and awe-inspiring frontier west of the Mississippi.
Book News Annotation:
Moring (1946-2002) (zoology, U. of Maine) begins with Lewis and Clark as enthusiastic amateurs of the early 19th century, progresses through a few well known figures such as John James Audubon and John Muir and many ones unfamiliar to the general public, to enthusiastic amateurs of the early 20th century.
