This is John Burroughs' 1875 work, “Winter Sunshine”. Within it, he describes with in wonderful prose and in breathtaking detail the beauty of Winter as observed in the New England countryside. Burroughs also explores a variety of other subjects in this book, ranging from the simple apple to British country churches. This volume will appeal to all those with an love of nature, and it would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. John Burroughs (1837 – 1921) was an American naturalist, essayist, and active member of the U.S. conservation movement. Burroughs' work was incredibly popular during his lifetime, and his legacy has lived on in the form of twelve U.S. Schools named after him, Burroughs Mountain, and the John Burroughs Association—which publicly recognizes well-written and illustrated natural history publications. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
