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 grandfather has an original copy of the book with the pen sketched pictures and all the wildlife doodles on the edges of the pages. The kindle version misses all that which is part of the charm of the book ~ but the stories are still great. Real tear jerkers. But as Mr. Seton reminds us, The life ending of every wild animal is always tragic. *sniff, sniff* One learns a lot about wild life behavior through this reading as well....

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.

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.

SETON writes as though he is a wild creature himself, such is his knowledge of wildlife.
No one can compare to his being able to render a story as though it was coming from the animal itself.

The animal stories are very good and the writing is very good. I am satisfied with these aspects of the book. What disappointed me is the format: it's not the typical paperback size or shape, and there isn't one photograph. It also bothered me that the paragraphs are not indented -- I see no reason for this omission, no matter when the book was written or whether or not the original manuscript used indentation. As for the lack of photographs, perhaps I should have realized from the economical price that there would be no photographs. Next time I have to be more careful in my orders.

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.

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

A pretty interesting book. Just a little far fetched for me. He stretches the truth about wolves a bit too much. Aside from that the book is very good.. take with a grain of salt and enjoy.
