Summary
"John Leonard Riddell was a medical doctor, geologist, and botanist who traveled from New Orleans through Texas in 1839, surveying the Texas Hill Country for a group of businessmen searching for the lost San Saba silver mine. By joining the expedition, which of course did not find the mine, Riddell became the first trained scientist - preceding even Ferdinand Roerner - to visit the area of the Edwards Plateau and to provide a detailed description of the botany and geology along his route."--BOOK JACKET. "James O. Breeden has here annotated the lively diary Riddell kept on his Hill Country trip and an article on Texas geology he later wrote. With notes and a substantial introduction, Breeden presents the scientist - his vitality, his accomplishments, and his role in the intellectual and civic life of his time - as well as the detailed story of his travels through Texas, adding considerably to our knowledge of the land as it was then."--BOOK JACKET
