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