First published in 1898, this collection of short stories brings alive the world of naturalist and author Ernest Seton. "Such a collection of histories naturally suggests a common thought-a moral it would have been called in the last century. No doubt each different mind will find a moral to its taste, but I hope some will herein find emphasized a moral as old as Scripture- we and the beasts are kin. Man has nothing that the animals have not at least a vestige of, the animals have nothing that man does not in some degree share." - SetonThis 2020 edition has been formatted and edited for the modern reader. All content is public domain work, simply with updated formatting. All originally artwork has been painstakingly incorporated into the new format.

Wild Animals I Have KnownErnest Thompson SetonWild animals I have known (1898) by Ernest Thompson Seton, illustrated with 200 drawings. THESE STORIES are true. The animals in this book were all real characters. They lived the lives depicted here, and showed the stamp of heroism and personality more strongly by far than it has been in the power of my pen to tell. Natural history has lost much by the vague general treatment that is so common. What satisfaction would be derived from a ten-page sketch of the habits and customs of Man? How much more profitable it would be to devote that space to the life of some one great man. This is the principle I have endeavored to apply to my animals. The real personality of the individual, and his view of life are my theme, rather than the ways of the race in general, as viewed by a casual and hostile human eye.

In the late '70s there was a massive migration of young gay men to San Francisco. They left home in droves, traveling by plane, bus, Pinto or Volkswagen towards a life free from discrimination. Struggling to make ends meet, many worked in bookstores and restaurants, all the while taking advantage of a scene of sexual hedonism. Kevin Bentley faithfully kept a frank, literate diary of his experiences as this generation of gay men tumbled into the era of AIDS.

Bud Jones has collected an amazing number of friends and acquaintances over a wondrous lifetime as a naturalist and teacher. Readers of this book Some Wild Animals I Have Known will meet a vast collection of creatures that skitter, creep, slither, dash, bound, and soar. The brief chapters are full of notes made from both research and personal experience. There is much to learn about the coloring, personalities, habitats, and life cycles of these dozens of insects, mammals, reptiles, and birds. Yet this is no garden variety nature guide, but rather an invitation to come out to the wild and share the world of nature. Filled with anecdotes and personal memories, Jones imparts a passion for living that is nearly endangered today. Wild Animals - Holds particular interest to people in the Southeastern United States. Most of the chapters revolve around the Tallapoosa River environs in rural Georgia. It also relates to animals of the Western United States and elsewhere, giving the book a North America-wide scope. - It brims with a story-teller's wit. Did you hear the one about the farmer who went out in his Long johns to shoot a fox in the henhouse? Bud knew him, and tells why the man ate nothing but fried chicken for a while. How about the story of the gospel singer, the man without a sense of smell, and the treed polecat? Unfortunately, Bud was caught in the spray of that yarn. - It is also unusual sampling of all forms of outdoor life, and explains why men and women thrill to the call of the wild and leave behind, for at least a day, the world of fast food and computers.

Reading about the antics of these animals is a real treat, especially when Throp takes us nose-close to the action." -- Betty Webb, author of THE ANTEATER OF DEATH and DESERT CUT: A LENA JONES MYSTERY "Jack Throp's Not-So-Wild Animals I Have Known will forever change our views on camels, koalas and other interesting zoo animals.
