This classic, histroical book is an affectionate look at the natural world around us. It is a book that will have a wide appeal, for in the heart of every human being, high or low, rich or poor, young or old, there is in some degree a love of natural history. The wonders of the animal creation, the instinct, the sagacity and all the ways thereof are a fascinating territory for the mind of man to explore. In its complete and unabridged original form it is extensively illustrated and a must have for the naturalist. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
