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.
