John Burroughs (1837-1921) was a noted naturalist, essayist and a significant figure in the history of environmentalism. He was born in a small town in the Catskills and spent the bulk of his adult life in West Park.  Note: not all of the journals include a transcription, so a keyword search of the collection will not include hits from all of the volumes.

This collection is also available through the Hudson River Valley Heritage (HRVH) website.  HRVH provides universal access to a collaborative digital record of Hudson River Valley history and creativity.
