Details

The Scottish naturalist David Douglas (1799–1834) made three trips to America’s Pacific Northwest between 1825 and 1834, sending back many specimens new to science, including the Douglas Fir that bears his name. Following in the naturalist’s footsteps to the mouth of the Columbia River, Jack Nisbet found the land and its peoples largely unchanged. This handsomely bound volume is illustrated with reproductions from Douglas’s journals, period maps and prints of both flora and fauna. Felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
