The Lives and Achievements of the Great Naturalists
America's most-beloved naturalist takes on history's foremost nature historians
One in a series of reissues that have been out-of-print for decades by one of the most-loved naturalists of all time. In Green Laurels, Donald Culross Peattie combines his extensive knowledge of history's foremost naturalists with his personal observations about the subject to form what the New York Herald Tribune called "a delightful book...one would not wish to miss on any account." This piece is accurate and precise but according to Nation, "there is not a line which is not dramatically vivid and entertaining." Peattie’s enthusiasm and enlightened curiosity make Green Laurels appealing to readers of all backgrounds.
