First published in1922, “Woodland Tales” is a charming collection of classic short animals stories for children of all ages. Ernest Thompson Seton (1860 – 1946) was an English author and wildlife artist who founded the Woodcraft Indians in 1902. He was also among the founding members of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), established in 1910. He wrote profusely on this subject, the most notable of his scouting literature including “The Birch Bark Roll” and the “Boy Scout Handbook”. Seton was also an early pioneer of animal fiction writing, and he is fondly remembered for his charming book “Wild Animals I Have Known” (1898). This collection is perfect bedtime reading for animal-loving children and would make for a worthy addition to any collection. Contents include: “Blue-eyes, the Snow-child, or the Story of Hepatica”, “The Story of the Dawnsinger, or How the Bloodroot Came”, “The Prairie-girl with Yellow Hair”, “The Cat's-eye Toad, a child of Maka Ina”, “How the Bluebird Came”, “Robin, the Bird that Loves to Make Clay Pots”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
