THE AUDUBON BOOK OF TRUE NATURE STORIES

  • Hardback Book with Dust Jacket
  • Selected and Edited by John K. Terres
  • Illustrated by Walter W. Ferguson
  • Book Club Edition
  • Over 300 pages
  • Copyright © 1958 by John K. Terres
  • " These are some of the best-loved stories from Audubon Magazine, long one of the most popular American nature magazines, which is edited by John K. Terres. Each story is true. Mr. Terres selected those which especially reveal the personalities and remarkable behavior of many of our North American wild creatures. Most of the stories describe a moving relationship between man and a wild friend. Such experiences are rare enough, and each tells us something about how fine mankind can be, as well as much about the animals themselves.
    In his introduction, Mr. Terres writes: "In some of these stores you will read about birds and other animals playing, courting, mating, building homes, and raising families - all struggling to live, and all living lives that are, in many ways, much like our own. Beautiful, graceful, gentle, and fierce, comic and tragic, these are wild children, sometimes near to being human, but never meant to be." "

    " The Audubon Book of True Nature Stories is a unique collection. Though it contains stories written by some famous naturalists - Edwin Way Teale, Alan Devoe, Alexander Sprunt, Jr., and others - most of the authors are unknowns who have had the kindness and patience to make friends with wild creatures. Each author writes honestly, warmly, and revealingly about the experiences that have meant so much to him or her. You can share in these experiences and capture some of the fun and excitement that others have known. Perhaps you, too, can make friends with some of these wild creatures. "

    " The Audubon Book of True Nature Stories contains original drawings by Walter W. Ferguson, noted nature artist whose work has appeared frequently in Audubon Magazine. His drawings, which are exceptionally beautiful and delicately executed, convey the moving spirit behind each story. "
