  • Donald Culross Peattie

    Donald Culross Peattie was a U.S botanist, naturalist and author He was described by Joseph Wood Krutch as perhaps the most widely read of all contemporary American nature writers during his heyday He was nature columnist for the The Washington Star from 1924 to 1935.His nature writings are distinguished by a poetic and philosophical cast of mind and are scientifically scrupulous His best known works are the two books out of a planned trilogy on North American trees which he wrote in the late 1940s and early 50s These were published as a single volume for the first time in April 2007 as A Natural History of North American Trees Unfortunately, this hardbound volume reduces the two books original 257 mini essays to only 112 and includes only 135 of Paul Landacre s original 365 woodcut illustrations.
