Wild Nature Won By Kindness

Publisher: T. Fisher Unwin 1898

I have always strongly maintained that the love of animated nature should be fostered far more than it usually is, and especially in the minds of the young; and that, in fact, we lose an immense amount of enjoyment by passing through life as so many do without a spark of interest in the marvelous world of nature, that book whose pages are ever lying open before us.
