Explorer. He was America's first native born naturalist-artist and the first author to write how he portrayed nature through personal experiences as well as scientific observation. From 1773 to 1776, his southern journey took him from the foothills of the Appalachian mountains to Florida, through the southeastern interior all the way to the Mississippi River. Also to eight states to include North and South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee, which was published as an account of his adventures titled "Bartram's Travels" in 1791.
