Te contamos un poco sobre el libro:
For over twenty-five years I have been giving the talks and demonstrations that are gathered together in this book. Many Of them have appeared in magazines or in the birch-bark Roll that has come out annually for ten years. But this is the first time in which a comprehensive collection has been made Of the activities, customs, laws, and amusements that have been developed in my camps. Some of the related subjects I have treated at too great length for enclosure in one book. Of this class are the Life Histories Of Northern Animals, Animal Stories, Sign Language and Forestry, which appear as separate works. All are merely parts of a scheme that I have always considered my life work, namely, the development or revival of Woodcraft as a school for Manhood. By Woodcraft I mean outdoor life in its broadest sense and the plan has ever been with me since boyhood. Woodcraft is the first of all the sciences. It was Woodcraft that made man out Of brutish material, and Woodcraft in its highest form may save him from decay. As the model for outdoor life in this country I took the Indian, and have thus been obliged to defend him against the calumnies Of those who coveted his possessions. In giving these few historical extracts to show the Indian character, it must be remembered that I could give hundreds, and that prae tically all the travelers who saw with their own eyes are of one mind in the matter. Commissioner Robert G. Valentine, of the Indian Bureau, the first Indian Commissioner we have ever had who knew and sympathized with the Indians, writes after reading my manu script.
Acerca de Ernest Thompson Seton
Ernest Thompson Seton (1860-1946) was born in England and moved with his family to Canada in 1866. As a young man, he became intrigued with the wild animals that lived in the woods outside his home. In 1882 he began systematic studies of animals while homesteading in Manitoba, in the United States. An important part of his work was to draw and paint the animals he observed.During his subsequent career as a naturalist, Seton wrote and illustrated hundreds of scholarly and popular articles, stories, and more than forty books about wild animals. The books include Wild Animals I Have Known (1898), Lives of the Hunted (1901), Animal Heroes (1905), The Biography of a Silver Fox (1909), Life Histories of Northern Animals (1909), Wild Animals at Home (1913), and Lives of Game Animals (1925-1928).
