About this title

Synopsis:

In his Travels, William Bartram recorded the natural world he saw around him but omitted reference to events of the American Revolution. This volume places Bartram in the context of his times and explains his conspicuous avoidance of people and places embroiled in Revolutionary fervour.

From the Inside Flap:

"Edward Cashin's research and analysis of Bartram is extensive and complete, giving his book the weight of a major authority on the man and his travels. . . . By pairing Bartram with the political and military events which the naturalist chose to disregard, Cashin offers us a valuable lesson in the art of historiography."--American Historical Review

"Brilliant in conception, exhaustive in research from archives and fieldwork, this book introduces a new genre of historical writing. It is thus far the most definitive work on the southern Indian frontier during the Revolutionary era."--Choice
