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.
