Ernest Thompson Seton was born in South Shields, Durham, England, in 1860. His family emigrated to Canada in 1866 and settled near Lindsay, Ontario. Four years later they moved to Toronto, where Seton received his early education. His first collection of animal stories, Wild Animals I Have Known (1898), won immediate critical and popular acclaim, and was followed in the next four decades by more than thirty volumes of such fiction. Seton founded a youth organization, the League of Woodcraft Indians, and in 1910 joined Lord Baden-Powell in establishing the Boy Scouts of America. 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.

Reviews about Wild Animals I Have Known (New Canadian Library) (7):
SPOILER ALERT: I first read this Whitman Classic book in 1959 when I was seven years old; and I remember crying my eyes out at the tragic ends of ALL of these animals (the story of Raggylug the rabbit is the only one in which the creature doesn't die, although his mother does) and hating the author for his part in many of their deaths (he himself died in 1946). He does state in the introduction that "the life of a wild animal ALWAYS has a tragic end", which is true, but it didn't make it any easier to take at the time. I wanted to read this book again as an adult; and found the author's observations of these animals as a naturalist in the late 1800s much more interesting the second time around. And having many years of life experience in the meantime tempered my reaction to the stories as being part of life's circle. The very sad fact is that the difference between how animals were "managed" 100 years ago and how the same animals are "managed" today hasn't changed all that much, particularly with the wolf, the fox, and the wild horse, which are still considered by the hunting and ranching industries as vermin to be exterminated...
"Wild Animals I Have Known" is truly one of those books that deserves its spot in the heart of Americans. Yes, some might find them simpering animal stories, others examples of a time of treating animals best long forgotten. But for those who can get inside the mind of Mr. Seton and just what he wanted to express, this becomes a wonderful read. Seton shares animal stories from creatures he has seen to creatures who get to tell their stories from their own perspectives. Some of the stories are fun, others are downright tragic, but all of them possess a spirited sense of adventure and wonder at the animal world. The telling of the tales is classic, making these wonderful for read-alouds or simply for a silent solo read. A fine testament to storytelling.
This book has some wonderful stories in it. However, I would like to note, I read none of them from this book. The book was unreadable (in a comfortable manner). The text gets smaller on some pages, larger on others, the pictures are not that bad however. What really was horrible though was the text columns, and the space left on the sides of the text (especially on the inside near the spine). The publisher decided to put the pictures BESIDE the text, rather than above or below. this then caused the text to be squeezed towards the inside of the book towards the spine. Thus causing the reader to have to crane their necks in order to read. The text is printed essentially inside the spine of the book. As if this wasn't proof enough that this book was rushed to into printing by a company that payed no attention to the books readability, on more than enough pages the text was scanned in crooked and thus cut-off and does not appear in the book. Sometimes entire words are missing. Sure, your mind can fill them in, but I payed for a book, not a half-a** scanned copy.

I had the book replaced with another paperback edition of this book which cost 50 cents or so more. Very much worth it. if you want to get a good edition of this book, which includes the pictures as far as I can tell, get "Wild Animals I Have Known (Yesterday's Classics)."

on to the review of the book:
The book itself is great, the stories are interesting, enticing, and vivid. I personally bought the book after watching a documentary on "Lobo - The King of Currumpaw." I wasn't sure what to expect, old books can be very dull. This one however really isn't. some of these stories could be great for audiences of all ages. I am personally 18, hate boring books, find Shakespeare dull and over dramatic, and any sort of literature written to before 1900 to likely be the epitome of dull and the definition of bad writing by todays English standards.

Some of these stories have some ugly images (not drawings) which if understood by a younger mind could cause some bad imagination repercussions. They gotta grow up sometime! But this book really isn't for just anybody. It's targeted at everyone however, it affects many when put into context, and greatly effects those that have a love of learning, adventure, and animals.

Overall the book was and is worth a read, ill keep it and read it in 20 years.
There is the ring of truth to each of these short stories. I found myself transported back sixty+ years, snug in Pop's lap listening to his tales of the years he spent as a cowboy on the plains and in the canyons of the Texas panhandle at a time when 'lobo' (prairie wolves) and cougars still roamed the area. A thoroughly enjoyable collection of stories by an author who most definitely knew of what he wrote. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in experiencing how it was.
The book is great, one of my top two favorites. Rating the version low because the illustrations are below sub-par, and not just because they are black and white, but because they are barely sketches. And there is no title page with publisher and date, and no illustrator's name. This could have been printed by 5th graders.
Just started reading this and I’m sure the content of the text is good but this reprint is horrible. The print is tiny and there are so many typos. Sad that a reprint couldn’t be done well.
really poor quality reprint. it was obviously reprinted from an original version, or, possibly from another reprinted copy. the "pictures" that it refers to, are illegible, and the print quality of the type is terrible. just saying. if I had known it was a reprint, I would not have purchased it.
It was very average. The stories were really about animals. I thought it would be a solid story throughout but it was a collection of short stories. Some were very impactful but I just don't think that it was my type of book.
