This early work by Charles G. D. Roberts was originally published in 1923 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. 'Wisdom of the Wilderness' is a collection of animal centred short stories that include 'The Watchers in the Swamp', 'Stripes the Unconcerned', 'The Fisher's of the Air', and many more. Charles G. D. Roberts was born on 10th January 1860, in Douglas, New Brunswick, Canada. He was the eldest of the six children of Emma Wetmore Bliss and Rev. George Goodridge Roberts (an Anglican Priest). In 1880 he published his first collection of poetry 'Orion and Other Poems'. This work received favourable reviews and established him as a promising Canadian literary figure. During his time as a professor at University of King's College, Nova Scotia, Roberts published his second book of poetry, 'In Divers Tones' (1886). Roberts's most successful literary genre was that of the animal story which featured in works such as 'Earth's Enigmas' (1896) and 'Eyes of the Wilderness' (1933). He also wrote romance novels and several non-fiction works on Canada.
