Plate 13 from FORTY ETCHINGS: FROM SKETCHES MADE WITH THE CAMERA LUCIDA, IN NORTH AMERICA IN 1827 AND 1828 by Captain Basil Hall. From the author's description: "A considerable portion of the Southern States of America, and even as far as North Carolina, is covered with boundless forests of pine-trees. These districts are called Pine Barrens, and the soil being generally sandy, with a scanty supply of water, they are probably destined to remain for ever in the state of a useless wilderness. Upwards of five hundred miles of our journey lay through these desolate forests, and I have therefore thought it worth while to give a Sketch, which is sufficiently characteristic of these singular regions."
