Product description


'A superbly told, moving and challenging story. For anybody remotely interested in the environment, Scottish culture, American history, the art of biography or the art of life, this book is essential' - Scotland on Sunday


1912. This work includes illustrations from sketches by the author. Scottish-born American naturalist, traveler, and writer who devoted much of his life to saving the natural beauties of the West from destruction by commercial exploitation.

The contents include: A Boyhood in Scotland; A New World; Life on a Wisconsin Farm; A Paradise of Birds; Young Hunters; The Ploughboy; Knowledge and Inventions; and The World and the University.
