The flower hunter and the people : William Bartram's writings on the Native American Southeast by William Bartram( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Bartram has rightly been hailed as an astute, perceptive chronicler of Native American societies. In some ways he was able to see beyond the dominant ideologies of his day, some of which divided the world s peoples into categories based on perceived savagism and civility. This was a noble effort, and worthy of praise more than two centuries later. Bartram could also use Native American civilization as a foil for an emerging white American society he saw as crass and grasping. Writing in this romantic mode, he was capable of downplaying the extent to which Native communities were fully part of the modern world that they and European invaders created together. THE FLOWER HUNTER AND THE PEOPLE tries to capture both of these aspects of Bartram's works. Its main purpose is to introduce Bartram s writings on Southeastern Native Americans, and to let Bartram and his indigenous consultants tell their stories in their own words. Along the way, readers should also consider this underlying fact, which rarely strayed from the Flower Hunter s mind. William Bartram was a guest in the Native Southeast. He traveled on paths smoothed, figuratively and literally, by Native Americans. He stayed in Muskogees' houses, ate Cherokees' food, and was, at times of their choosing, permitted glimpses of his hosts' worldviews and lifeways. It would be too much of a stretch to say that Native people co-authored the passages concerning their societies in Bartram, but the things they allowed Bartram to record bore cultural and political weight in their own times, and they can speak to us in ours as well

10 editions published between 1794 and 1980 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Bartram (1739-1823) was the first native-born American artist-naturalist. He set off in March, 1773, from Philadelphia for Georgia and Florida where he collected objects and supplied various patrons in England with illustrations of American plants and animals. Bartram's published record of this journey is not merely a technical work, but an intensely poetic one, and is the most important and beautiful description of the southeastern United States during the 18th century. William returned to Philadelphia in 1777 where he spent the rest of his long life, making botanical drawings

7 editions published between 1791 and 2011 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The son of a naturalist, William Bartram (1739-1823) was commissioned to undertake a tour of south-eastern North America in 1773. Collecting seeds, taking specimens and making meticulous drawings and observations of previously unknown flora and fauna, his four-year expedition took him from the foothills of the Appalachians, through Florida and on to the Mississippi. First published in 1791, within ten years this account had been translated into German, French and Dutch. A unique historical record now, and of particular interest at the time, his accounts of the Seminole, Creek and Cherokee Indians were seen by contemporaries as being sympathetic towards peoples commonly regarded as little better than savages, but his writings persuaded others of the need for a more humane approach to the indigenous people. This work influenced not only scientists, but writers such as Wordsworth and Coleridge, and it remains a classic of American science, history and literature
