Our Native Trees and How to Identify Them


With 178 full-page plates from photographs, and 162 text-drawings. Crown 8vo, $2.00 net.

The trees described in this volume are those indigenous to the region extending from the Atlantic Ocean to the Rocky Mountains and from Canada to the northern boundaries of the Southern States; together with a few well-known and naturalized foreign trees such as the Horse-Chestnut, Lombardy Poplar, Ailantus, and Sycamore Maple.

"Miss Keeler has made a very commendable addition to the semi-popular treatises on American plants, in a well-written, well-illustrated, and well-printed account of native and naturalized trees. Bits of the best from the poets and prose writers relieve the descriptions, and the folk-lore of a number of trees is well if briefly told."—American Naturalist.

"To such of the general public as habitually frequent the woods which they love, the book will be most welcome, for it is carefully classified, adequately illustrated, and most readably written."—Boston Budget.

"It condenses into convenient shape a fund of information spread over many volumes of older works, and blends the practical and poetical in a way to delight all readers."

St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
