Here is our second collection of stories about wild animals in their natural environments. With two exceptions (Morgan Robertson’s “On the Rio Grande” and A. J. Dawson’s “Old Man Jack”) they attempt to realistically portray the typical lives of various species’ members. The “golden age” for this genre was the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. (We have located more than five hundred examples of these stories so far.) Thus, long before nature documentaries, literary endeavors explored the same ground. (Up until then wild animal stories had appeared primarily as myths, legends, fables, or fairy tales.) 6×9, softcover.
