Wake-Robin is the first of Burroughs' published essays, an 1871 classic “invitation to the study of ornithology.” The title is taken from the common name of the white trillium, which blooms just as migratory birds (including robins) show up in the northern states in the Spring. Burroughs is an ardent reporter of the natural world, and of songbirds in particular. Artistically written in the style adapted from his personal diary. Sure to be enjoyed by any fan of Henry David Thoreau, Walt Whitman, or Ralph Waldo Emerson. Includes: The return of the birds -- In the hemlocks -- The Adirondacks -- Birds'-nests -- Spring at the capital -- Birch browsings -- The bluebird -- Invitation. Burroughs is best-known for his observations on birds, flowers and rural scenes, but his essay topics also range to religion and literature. Since his death in 1921, John Burroughs has been commemorated by the John Burroughs Association.
