In 1947 Edwin Way Teal, the most popular naturalist in the decade between Aldo Leopold and Rachel Carson, followed the progress of spring over four months from the Everglades to the summit of Mount Washington. His best-selling book, Returning North with the Spring, recounts the epic journey he and his wife Nellie undertook. In 2012 John Harris set out to retrace Teale’s route, stopping at unfamiliar wild places on the same calendar date on which Teale visited. Co-sponsored by NH Humanities.
