> Hi Catherites,
> For what it's worth, my Cather/Trees Concordance Blog, packed with human error, is finished. I thought I'd share some observations from it. In her novels, Cather refers to over 50 species of trees with the cottonwood (no surprise there) mentioned most. The novel with the most tree references is Death Comes for the Archbishop. The one with the least, My Mortal Enemy. Below is a list of the novels with the number of tree references and the tree referenced most in each novel.
