Wandering Through Winter by Edwin Way Teale, originally published in 1957, this edition was printed in 1965.

With the publication of Wandering Through Winter, Teale completed the ambitious project he had been working on from more than twenty years - an imaginative undertaking unlike that of any other naturalist of his time - a four-volume, continent-wide survey know as "The American Seasons."

In this book, the author describes his experiences traveling from San Diego Bay to northern Maine with his wife Nellie, and shares his observations on nature and the environment along the way. Filled with the rich natural history of the United States, Teale encounters all manner of plant and animal.  While not exactly a gardening book, many topics of interest to the home gardener are touched upon as Teale paints a vivid picture of the mid-century natural world.

Wandering Through Winter - "A naturalist's record of a 20,000-mile journey through the North American winter" - completes Teale's American seasons set that also includes North with the Spring, Journey Into Summer, and Autumn Across America.

Written by Pulitzer Prize winner Edwin Way Teale with black-and-white photographs by the author.  Hardcover with dust jacket, published by Dodd, Mead & Company, containing 370 pages and 49 photographs.  Measures approximately 8 1/2" x 5 5/8".  Some wear to dust jacket and discoloration due to age.  Note the previous owner's name stamp on edges.

Take a step back in time and immerse yourself in all aspects of winter life, as well as a good road trip from coast to coast, during the middle years of the country.
