In Wild Animals I Have Known, Ernest Thompson Seton guides us through the inner lives of the creatures he met on Manitoba's plains, New Mexico's ranges, and in Toronto's ravines. His portrayal of the ways of nature is a fascinating reflection of the conflicting impulses of his time: Romanticism is tempered by scientific observation; sentimentality by Darwinian dispassion. Yet each of Seton's animal heroes - Silverspot the Crow, Raggylug, the Cottontail Rabbit, and Wully, the Yaller Dog - is in his way an exception among his kind.
