Rediscovering Catesby’s Carolina Part 1

Passport Season 4 Episode 9 | 26m 48s

Mark Catesby journeyed to the Carolinas in 1722. The descriptions included in his book, the Natural History of Carolina, Georgia and the Bahama Islands seems outlandish considering the natural communities surrounding us today. Imagine a Carolina where Bison, Elk and Wolves roam vast grasslands, where fire, set by humans shape the land.
