Description

This book focuses on artist-naturalist Ernest Thompson Seton, who has been compared with Kipling as a writer, with Audubon as a bird artist, with Baden Powell as a youth leader, and with Fabre as a naturalist. Very much a neglected figure, this study provides an introduction to the life and work of this "creative genius," a naturalist who, at the turn of the century, was largely responsible for initiating an ecological consciousness and ethic.
