Free sample

First published in 1910, “In the Catskills” is a fantastic selection of essays concerning The Catskill Mountains by American naturalist John Burroughs. Nowhere is a love of Catskill Mountain landscape, its flora and fauna, and its people more beautifully expressed then in these eight essays. Highly recommended for lovers of nature writing and naturalism. John Burroughs (1837 – 1921) was an American naturalist, essayist, and active member of the U.S. conservation movement. Burroughs' work was incredibly popular during his lifetime, and his legacy has lived on in the form of twelve U.S. Schools named after him, Burroughs Mountain, and the John Burroughs Association—which publicly recognizes well-written and illustrated natural history publications. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
