The Collector: David Douglas & the Natural History

Category: Natural History


Author: Jack Nisbet


Copyright/published Year: 2009 by Sasquatch Books


ISBN: 1570616132


Binding: Hardcover


Description:
The Collector tracks Douglas' fascinating history, from his humble birth in Scotland in 1799 to his botanical training under the famed William Jackson Hooker to his adventures in North America discovering "exotic" new plants for the English and European market. The book takes readers along on Douglas' journeys into a literal "brave new world" of then-obscure realms from Puget Sound to the Sandwich Islands. In telling Douglas' story, Nisbet evokes a lost world of early exploration, pristine nature, ambition, and cultural and class conflict with surprisingly modern resonances.
