Oregon Country in the 1850s - rich in nature, gold and adventure . . .
"The Revenant (Michael Punke) meets The Invention of Nature (Andrea Wild)"

In 1850 young Scottish tree-hunter John Jeffrey is despatched by an elite group of Victorian subscribers to seek highly-prized exotic tree species in North America.

An early letter home tells of a 1,200 mile transcontinental journey on foot. Later, tantalising botanical samples arrive from British Columbia, Oregon and California, yet early promise soon withers. Three years after setting out John Jeffrey disappears without a trace. Was he lost to love, violence or the Gold Rush?

The secrets of this extraordinary adventure lie in his precious journals which remained lost, until their discovery and reproduction, 160 years later, in 2018.
