About the Author

Ernest Thompson Seton was born in South Shields, Durham, England, in 1860. His family emigrated to Canada in 1866 and settled near Lindsay, Ontario. Four years later they moved to Toronto, where Seton received his early education. He graduated from the Ontario College of Art in 1879 and pursued further studies at the Royal Academy in England, and at l'Académie Julian in Paris.

Seton returned to Canada in 1881 and joined his brother on a homestead near Carberry, Manitoba. There he made extensive notes on the behaviour of animals and birds, complementing his studies as a naturalist with commissioned work as an illustrator and painter.

His first collection of animal stories, Wild Animals I Have Known (1898), won immediate critical and popular acclaim, and was followed in the next four decades by more than thirty volumes of such fiction.
Seton founded a youth organization, the League of Woodcraft Indians, and in 1910 joined Lord Baden-Powell in establishing the Boy Scouts of America. In the same year, he wrote the Boy Scouts of America Official Manual.

In 1930 Seton moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he set up Seton Village, a centre for environmentalists, naturalists, and students of North American Indian culture.

Ernest Thompson Seton died in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1946.

My 11 year old son loves this book.
Kaysha
What disappointed me is the format: it's not the typical paperback size or shape, and there isn't one photograph.
Jean Alexander
Aside from that the book is very good..

I got the kindle edition and then had to buy the hardcopy I liked it so much. Of Course Mr. Seton
starts out with "Lobo" King of Curnpaw (sp) the wolf who changed his life but his insights into all the animals
and about their lives is really interesting and amazing something lacking in much of today's society. This would
be a nice book for young adults, although most of the stories end sadly... it is due to Man's interference or greed to kill
the animal because they consider it either a pest or a prize! We really need to get kids reading writers like Mr. Seton and off the ipads and
things that sever the connection with nature. Mr. Seton's deep connection with all animals comes through and I think
about these animals on my daily walks. I had never heard of him?! And he is a most amazing writer of animal stories.
I look forward to reading more of his books.

Nice approach to the subject. The author obviously spent time with the animals to develop the environments and the animal's thinking.

A landmark book in the early 1900's, today it seems more like a children s book; maybe it was written for children. Nonetheless an interesting book.

Seton was one of the first naturalists of the late 1890's and 1900's. He saw the destruction first hand, and actually participated in it. His stories show a knowledge of the animal at a primal level. It is too bad that like many people, they start out with good intentions and when they become famous they forget their beginnings.

It's crap. There are typos throughout and zero illustrations. You literally might as well just go here [...] and print the book out on printer paper and have it bound at an office supply store for $2. You will have a nearly exact duplicate of this book, but without the typos.

This book is really great, a collection of stories that have the principal of survival for animals,
it seems all the animals end up dead in the end but not all of them.

My favorites are Logo, Raggylug, Willy, and Redruff, these are so exciting and sad too at the same time.

Wolfs, dogs, Foxs, partridges, crows, mustang horses, rabbits, Seton has it all covered!
Read it !

I first read this book as a youngster -- a very long time ago. This is my third time through it, and my love for it continues.

Ernest Thompson Seton was not a scientist, but he was a keen observer. And he deeply respected the animals he spent time with. This book has been disparaged as being unscientific. But Seton says, with what feels to me like profound truth, that the lives of wild animals nearly always end violently, and that they feel just as keenly as human beings. Based on my much more limited knowledge, I agree with him.
