About the Author

In the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, in a field dominated by her male counterparts, Kate Furbish made a name for herself traveling the length and breadth of Maine, collecting, classifying, and illustrating the native flora of the state. She discovered two previously unknown plants, which were named for her, and devoted sixty years of her life to this endeavor, producing hundreds of illustrations, most of which are now housed at the Bowdoin College Library. Melissa Dow Cullina is the director of education and a staff botanist at Coastal Maine Maine Botanical Gardens.
