In 1912, the great American naturalist John Burroughs was asked by a preacher to talk to his clergy on the “gospel of nature.” In his essay, Burroughs reflects on the impact and influence his excursions in nature had on his life. “That I am a saner, healthier, more contented man, with truer standards of life, for all my loiterings in the fields and woods, I am fully convinced.” This short work is part of Applewood's “American Roots” series, tactile mementoes of American passions by some of America's most famous writers and thinkers.

1930. Among John Burroughs' contemporaries were many who considered him irreligious because of his attitude to organized Christianity. Those were the days when one sign of true religion was to exercise a pharisaic hauteur toward the unorthodox. This attitude toward Burroughs, therefore, might have been expected, but it is strange to find many people today who are under the impression that he was a freethinker, a skeptic, or an atheist, or a mysterious mixture of all three. It is to meet this mistaken view that this book has been written. Contents: The Phantoms Behind; Before Genius; The Breath of Life; Soundings; At Sea; The Faith of a Naturalist; The Decadence of Theology.
