In the same year, he wrote the Boy Scouts of America Official Manual.
Seton Ernest Thompson. WILD ANIMALS I HAVE KNOWN By Ernest Thompson Seton THESE STORIES are true. Although I have left the strict line of historical truth in many places, the animals in this book were all real characters. THESE STORIES are true. They lived the lives I have depicted, and showed the stamp of heroism and personality more strongly by far than it has been in the power of my pen to tell. I believe that natural history has lost much by the vague general treatment that is so common. Издание: перепечатанное.
