Description de l’éditeur
First published in 1907, this is an account of the author's time spent travelling and observing nature with U.S. President Roosevelt. This volume offers both an authentic glimpse of U.S. wildlife and a unique insight into the mind of Theodore Roosevelt, and it is not to be missed by lovers of nature writing. John Burroughs (1837 - 1921) was an American naturalist, essayist, and active member of the U.S. conservation movement. Burroughs' work was incredibly popular during his lifetime, and his legacy has lived on in the form of twelve U.S. Schools named after him, Burroughs Mountain, and the John Burroughs Association-which publicly recognizes well-written and illustrated natural history publications. Other notable works by this author include: "Winter Sunshine" (1875), "Birds and Poets" (1877), and "Locusts and Wild Honey" (1879). Contents include: "The President on Glacier Point, Yosemite Valley", "Arrival at Gardiner, Montana", "The President, Mr. Burroughs and Secretary Loeb", "The President in the Bear Country", "Mr. Burroughs's Favorite Pastime", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
