Synopsis

First published in 1917. "To really understand what the wild flowers are doing, what the scheme of each one is, besides looking beautiful, is to give one a broader sympathy with both man and Nature and to add a real interest and joy to life which cannot be too widely shared. " According to Wikipedia: "Nellie Blanchan De Graff (October 23, 1865 February 21, 1918) was a United States scientific historian and nature writer who wrote books on gardening and birds using the penname Neltje Blanchan.
