Burroughs, John.

At the turn of the 20th century, John Burroughs ranked among America’s most popular authors. The distinguished naturalist possessed a special gift for sharing his close observations in an engaging style that combines scientific accuracy with a grand poetic expression. This 1871 collection of essays, his first on nature, focuses on one of his favourite topics, birds, particularly those of the Adirondack and Washington, D.C. regions.
