In “Nature’s Messenger”, writer Patrick Dean follows Mark Catesby from his youth in rural England to his early work as a Naturalist and his adventurous travels. A pioneer in many ways, Catesby’s careful attention to the knowledge of non-Europeans in America – the enslaved Africans and Native Americans who had their own sources of food and medicine from nature – set him apart from others of his time.
