1901 1st ed Lives of Hunted Illustrated BIRDS & Animals Hunting Outdoors Seton



Ernest Thompson Seton (1860-1946) was a prominent wildlife author. He also founded the Woodcraft Indians and was one of the founding pioneers of the Boy Scouts of America. He wrote several books on Scouting and was a pioneer of the modern school of animal fiction writing.



‘Lives of the Hunted’ is a collection of eight short stories and each one bears its underlying message of the kinship between man and animals. Five of the stories relate to four-footed animals and three to birds.



In the snowy ranges of the Northwest, we are shown Krag, the mighty Kootenay ram, delighting in his strength and beauty, who at last falls victim to man s desire for "trophies of the chase." In the guarded forests of the Yellowstone Park we see little "Johnny Bear" borne down in his struggles for existence, and Chink, the trembling little pup, who rises to the heights of dog-like fidelity and courage. In the sage-brush deserts of New Mexico, we follow the Kangaroo rat to the fairy-like labyrinths of his underground kingdom or view the experiences of Coyotito. Mother Teal, guarding her helpless brood against the perils of the world, Randy, the busy little cock-sparrow, and the chickadees of the North woods, are all pictured in a way that cannot fail to impress the reader.

“This book, like its predecessor, strikes a note that is clear and forcible as well as appealing, and will do more to change one’s attitude towards the dumb animals than protective and preventive legislation could ever have accomplished.” (Warner)
