He has found a pleasure in tramping about the woods and the streams, in seeing nature at first hand and an almost equal pleasure in reading of what others have seen and loved.It would be nice indeed to give credit where credit is due but where should I begin and where could I end? A father and mother who taught me to see things and to love them, an old half-breed Indian who in my childhood showed me many a sacred spot of earth, an old shoemaker who now in his ninetieth year and livin on borrowed time still has the heart of a ten-year-old, unnumbered bevies of school children who have followed me up hill and down dale giving me a thousand eyes with which to see, Audubon Wilson, Nuttall, Thoreau, Burroughs, Seton and many more may claim a share of whatever of worth there may be within these covers.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
