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

The records kept by William Bartram of his journeys through the Southern colonies in the 18th century constitute a classic of American natural history. These records have already been the subject of close literary study and acclaim as a source of some of Wordsworth's and Coleridge's finest imagery. Here, however, is the first examination and interpretation of the Travels conducted expressly from the naturalist's point of view. Mr. Harper has followed nearly all the turnings of Bartram's trails through the Southeast, identifying his numerous plants and animals, locating his Indian villages, and providing concise biographical information for the major and minor figures that move through the pages. New illustrations, along with those of 1791, show buildings, natural scenes, and the plant and animal life under discussion

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
