Reproduction of Our Native Trees now available.
Our Native Trees and How to Identify Them, first published by
Charles Scribner's & Sons, was warmly received at a time when
America was rapidly urbanizing and public interest in conservation and
the establishment of parks was growing. In the book's preface,
author Harriett L. Keeler, an educator, author, and naturalist,
explained that "the trees described ... are those indigenous to the
region extending from the Atlantic Ocean to the Rocky Mountains, and
from Canada to the northern boundaries of the southern states; together
with a few well-known and naturalized foreign trees." Profusely illustrated, and containing an introduction that illuminates
Keeler's life and accomplishments, this 533-page facsimile
reproduction of the original 1900 edition by Kent State University Press
is available in paperback for $22.95 from KSU Press, 307 Lowry Hall,
P.O. Box 5190, Kent, OH 44242-0001, www.kentstateuniversitypress.com.
