These are on a par with the best of Seton-Thompson, Roberts, Kipling. There is variety here, there is realism, there is drama, there are articles on conservation, there are contemplative tales. There are stories that are great stories in their own right, regardless of the special appeal of the animal interest. Few of the stories fall into the danger of sentimentality. An excellent collection, which should have a plus sale for boys and girls in addition to the adult sale.
