A literary naturalist and an Audubon of prose, John Burroughs blended his loves of literature and the great outdoors to become one of America's premier essayists. In telling the story of his life, this award-winning program places Burroughs within the contexts of both his times and our own as it visits the locales and dwellings that made up his world. Excerpts from his writings are drawn from works spanning his long and prolific career: Wake-Robin, Locusts and Wild Honey, Signs and Seasons, Riverby, Whitman: A Study, Far and Near, Ways of Nature, Leaf and Tendril, Under the Apple-Trees, Field and Study, and My Boyhood. An informative and uplifting program that lends itself equally to studies of environmental science, American literature, and U.S. history
