Our Native Trees and How to Identify Them, first published by Charles Scriber's Sons in 1900, was warmly received at a time when America was rapidly urbanizing and public interest in conservation and the establishment of parks was growing. In her preface, Keeler explained that "the trees described . . . are those indigenous to the region extending from the Atlantic Ocean to the Rocky Mountains and from Canada to the northern boundaries of the southern states; together with a few well-known and naturalized foreign trees." Profusely illustrated and with a biographical introduction by Carol Poh Miller that illuminates Keeler's life and accomplishments, this edition of Our Native Trees and How to Identify Them will aid a new generation to identify and thus better appreciate what they observe outdoors.
The New York Times [in June 1900] pronounced it 'well-written and thoroughly interesting'... The reviewer concludes: 'The book... should add new interest to the coming summer for many to whom Nature is practically a sealed book, as well as heighten the pleasure of others to whom she has long been dear.' - from the Introduction"
