One of the earliest pieces of American nature writing and the first by a woman. The daughter of novelist James Fenimore Cooper, Susan Fenimore Cooper (1813-1894) uses narratives and descriptions of her walks and excursions to reveal her ideal society as a rural one, carefully poised between the receding wilderness and a looming industrialization. The edition, the only printing of the full original text since 1876, restores passages excised by the author for an 1887 edition. Edited by Rochelle Johnson and Daniel Patterson.
University of Georgia Press, 1998. Paperback, 352 pp.
