In 1765 the father and son naturalists John and William Bartram first explored the natural wonders of the St. Johns River Valley in Florida. Traversing a landscape virtually unknown at the time, one that was subtropical in many ways and then a British territory, they collected plants and made extensive observations of local animal life, geography, ecology, and native cultures of this essentially uncharted region. The Bartrams chronicled their adventures and, in doing so, helped provide the world with an intimate look at La Florida.
Travels on the St. Johns River presents writings by these pioneering naturalists, including selections from John Bartram's Diary, family correspondence, and William's description of the St. Johns River Valley from his celebrated Travels. It also provides valuable editorial notes and a modern record of the flora and fauna they once encountered, allowing readers to see the land through the explorers' eyes. This volume helps us rediscover the Bartrams' history, their findings, and their Florida-as well as the Florida of today.
