In this classic account, the botanist William Bartram records his exploration of the southern wilderness just before the American Revolution. He portrays the wilderness and the flora and fauna and Indigenous people before white settlement. While researching and writing Boone I referred again and again to his poetic descriptions. Bartram is an inspiration.

From Robert's list on the world of Daniel Boone.
