Ways of Nature

First published in 1905, "Ways of Nature" is a collection of essays by American naturalist John Burroughs. Within them, Burroughs explores the idea of bird intelligence, which he maintains had been generally misjudged by his contemporaries due to a "growing tendency to humanize the lower animals". A fascinating and masterfully-written treatise, "Ways of Nature" is not to be missed by fans and collectors of Burroughs' seminal work. Contents include: "Ways Of Nature", "Bird-songs", "Nature With Closed Doors", "The Wit Of A Duck", "Factors In Animal Life", etc. 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, as well as Burroughs Mountain, and the John Burroughs Association. Contents include: "The Return of the Birds", "In the Hemlocks", "The Adirondacks", "Birds'-Nests", "Spring at the Capital", "Birch Browsings", "The Bluebird", "The Invitation", 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.
