"Anyone interested in the rural south in the first half of the 19th century, particularly Alabama, would be fascinated by this book. The comments of an early natualist, steamboat travel, family life, hunting, and his reaction to slavery are priceless. If you were interested enough to read this review you need to read this book." - Amazon Reviewer

This was a great book describing the flora and fauna of Alabama in the early 1800's. The kindle version however, had various typographical errors on just about every page.

“But stay; suppose you just transport yourself (in imagination) to Alabama, and spend the day with me. I will be your cicerone, will point out to you all the birds and insects, and tell you "all about 'em;" and, as Hood's schoolboy says, "I'll show you the wasp's nest, and everything that can make you comfortable.” 0 likes
