About this book

This book focuses on artist-naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton, who has been compared with Kipling as a writer, with Audubon as a bird artist, with Baden Powell as a youth leader, and with Fabre as a naturalist. Very much a neglected figure, this study provides an introduction to the life and work of this "creative genius," a naturalist who, at the turn of the century, was largely responsible for initiating an ecological consciousness and ethic.

Media reviews
... this book on Ernest Thompson Seton is a much-needed study of an unjustly neglected genius: a pioneer ecologist, the creator of the realistic animal story, and the inspirer of the outdoor youth movements, including the Boy Scouts. [He] was ahead of his time, and now the issues he was concerned with are of great public interest. Professor Morris's book is warmly to be welcomed. - Professor R.A. Atcherley, University of Brighton"
