The newest post of the Lawson Trek on the Scientific American Blog Network site Expeditions is up. Go see us there!
--Next segment scheduled for late December
--Interesting people to meet coming soon: Val Green knows where Lawson slept every night and seemingly everything else there is to know about Lawson; one Richard Traunter seems to have written an unpublished sketch of a journey similar to Lawson's taken two years before Lawson's; I have cool photos of sketches of flora and of Charleston made several years before Lawson showed up; I have been speaking to an artist who is both planning to draw on the trek with me and putting the illustrations from Lawson's book into context; and I have befriended an ecologist who plans to trek with me during my next segment.
In short, I am very excited to be heading out again.
