At the turn of the 20th century, John Burroughs ranked among America's most popular authors. The distinguished naturalist possessed a special gift for sharing his close observations in an engaging style that combines scientific accuracy with a grand poetic expression. This 1871 collection of essays, his first on nature, focuses on one of his favorite topics - birds - particularly those of the Adirondack and Washington, D.C. regions.

Best known for his writing on birds, flowers, and life in the Catskills, he moved in prominent social circles that included Walt Whitman, John Muir, Theodore Roosevelt, Henry Ford, and Thomas Edison.
