About this book

John Bartram was the greatest collecting botanist of his day, personally introducing fully one quarter of all the plants that reached Europe from the New World during the colonial period. His son, William, was America's first great native-born natural historian and important nature artist. In addition to illuminating these two lives, Slaughter reveals changing attitudes toward science, religion, natural philosophy, and commerce and addresses questions about parenthood, race and gender relations, environmental ethics, and evocations of the self.

Media reviews
An outstanding work of scholarship that tells us much about a natural world that no longer exists but that our age should know.-Philadelphia Inquirer "Slaughter has broken the confines of ordinary narrative history... Books about the business of fatherhood and the trials of sonhood are very rare, and this is a fine one."-Boston Globe "A fascinating page-turner that should not be missed."-Michael Kammen, Cornell University
