About this Item

Text/As New; showing margin discoloration. Illustrated grey bords/NF. DJ/VG w/rubs to leading edges & closed nips, tears to edges. First published 1843; this is 1961 reprint, Weekly Reader Children's Book Club. Set in 1791, when Tennesse was known as the Territory South of the River Ohio. Young Tobias' first impression of Asa Twistletree was not good: "skinny, twisted and dried up" strange little man with metal rimmed spectaces, in leather britches and a ragged coat, on his hands and knees "a-studying ants." Tobias soon finds himself 'bound out' to Mr. Twistletree, gives up thoughts of being a blacksmith's apprentice to follow the funny-looking naturalist, Mr. Twistletree of Philadelphia in search of flora and fauna in the wildernes . even venturing into hostile Chickamauga Indian Territory! Story of an early American naturalist. Pen & ink line drawings. Bookseller Inventory # 000710
