John Burroughs 2009 Medal Awarded to Confluence: Merrymeeting Bay by Franklin Burroughs

The John Burroughs Association announces the winner of its annual award, created 81 years ago to honor outstanding natural history writing, a genre perfected by John Burroughs. In Confluence: Merrymeeting Bay (Tilbury House, 2006), award winner Franklin Burroughs (who is not related to John Burroughs) reflects on the human and natural history of this colorful Maine bay with vivid descriptions of its wild nature and insightful observations of the people who inhabit it.
