KIRKUS REVIEW

A prodigal collection of 120 selections, in which ""many men describe many of nature's children"", and find them ""to be admired as well as used"", is designed to show man's relations with, and attitudes, toward the animal kingdom as well as please a wide audience. From the Book of Job down on through the annals of famous observers- Darwin, Buffon, Audubon, etc. to others who have written about animals- for sentiment's rather than science- Kipling, Mark Twain, Melville, Colette, Clarence Day, etc., this collection represents composite interests and a cavalcade of fine writers through the ages.
