Item Description

Meet via Zoom for 40 minutes with author Geoff Wisner and received signed hardcover copies of his books "Thoreau's Animals" and "Thoreau's Wildflowers." PLUS a paperback copy in very good condition of Ray Angelo's hard-to-find 1984 "Botanical Index to the Journal of Henry David Thoreau."

"Wisner's seasonal compilation of Thoreau's prolific wildflower observations coupled with Ray Angelo's heralded profile of Thoreau as Botanist provide a delightful read and invaluable resource." --Cherrie Corey

"Everyone knows that Thoreau is at or near the top of the list of American thinkers and writers. But as this lovely volume reminds us, he was also a world-class noticer, a remarkable and original observer of all things natural." --Bill McKibben

"Ray Angelo has combed the standard 14 volumes of Thoreau's Journal in search of references to flowers, trees, and other vascular plants. (Mosses, lichens, mushrooms, and fungi are not included.) This index lists the plants by common name and by Latin name.... Ray Angelo took the time to do it right. If an organism's Latin name has changed since Thoreau's time, he noted it. If the common name of a plant has changed, he noted it. If a former variation of a species is now a separate one in its own right, he noted it." --Corinne H. Smith
