200 pages, Maps, 19 photos
In her enquiry into the intricate connections among work, place and people, Frieda Knobloch explores the lives of two Rocky Mountain botanists, Aven Nelson (1859-1952) and Ruth Ashton Nelson (1896-1987).
An utterly original account of historical and personal transformations. In shining prose and wide-ranging interpretive frameworks, Knobloch interrogates and honors her subjects (and her readers) as scholars, as persons, and most of all as companions. Forging a story from the fragments of history and memory, the book acknowledges the things we can't understand about historical subjects and the ways they can help us better understand ourselves. -Steven J. Holmes, author of The Young John Muir: An Environmental Biography"
