description <p>Historical notes on Island plants are<br />always a pleasure to encounter;<br />there are implicit clues to both the<br />observer and the observed. Whether it is<br />a casual comment by Cartier on "wild !<br />oats like rye" along the North Shore, or<br />the businesslike John Stewart, classifying<br />land from best to worst by the trees<br />growing on it, there is information and a<br />point of view. However, the pleasure is<br />often mixed with irritation. Sometimes<br />the notes are so scattered that it is like<br />trying to appreciate the genius of Caruso<br />from an old wax recording: the frustra-<br />tion index is high.</p>
