Ways of Wood Folk

by William J. Long

Description:  "All crows are alike" a wit once said of politicians, but in fact, to find two crows exactly alike one must approach them blindfolded. Every one of Nature's creatures has its uniqueness, ways of being in the world that are peculiar to it, just as a small boy's smile exactly fits his face and no other. In this work, Long introduces readers to the fox, the merganser, the moose, and more, focusing always on those traits of character and action that are individual to (or constitute a kind of "signature" of) the creature under observation. Warning: Reading may induce a strong urge to go outdoors.
