Abstract:

"Afloat & Afoot is a celebration of John Burroughs, a Catskills native famous for his writings on the natural world that surrounds us all. This first-ever audio edition of his work includes a recounting of Burroughs' impromptu voyage down the Pepacton (now an important water source for New York City), and a recollection of his expedition to the top of Slide Mountain, the region's highest peak. Burroughs' words are given new life by narrators Brett Barry and Rolland Smith; and his essays are followed by conversations with Burroughs experts Diane Galusha and Bill Birns. Listen to Burroughs, then hear why his work is as relevant now as it was in his time."--Publisher's description.
