Between 1773 and 1777, William Bartram, America's first native born naturalist, traveled through the Southeast collecting plants and making scientific drawings for his wealthy English patron. In 1791 he published an account of his remarkable four-year adventure; an account that is still one of the most important and beautiful descriptions of the region in eighteenth century, William Bartram's unique view of the natural world expressed through his words and illustrations inspired generations of scientist and poets.
