Essays on Ecology 1904-1933 is a fascinating look at the pioneer botanist, teacher, doctor and author H.S. Pepoon (1860-1941), and his influence on Northwest Illinois. The book's publisher, Cory Ritterbusch, discovered Pepoon's original essays and has made 11 of them available, along with 38 pages of images pertaining to Pepoon's life and career. The essays offer a valuable look at the land of Northwest Illinois as it was in the early 1900's, and reveal many emerging conservation trends of the time, including land preservation and environmental ethics. Pepoon was instrumental in efforts to create public natural areas, including Apple River Canyon State Park, where he discovered the rare Bird's Eye Primrose plant. This book is the only first-hand account of the natural world of Northwest Illinois during the early 20th century-a must read for restoration ecologists in the Upper Midwest, local historians, nature lovers, botanists, antique book collectors, and fans of Apple River Canyon State Park. Pepoon writes with a sense of wonder and purpose that prefigures later environmental writers, and will inspire people far beyond the Midwest. With a Foreword by Bill Handel of the Illinois Natural History Survey, and a biography of Pepoon by Mr. Ritterbusch.
