Product Description


“Nature study is the out-of-door side of natural history, the unmeasured, unprinted side of poetry. It is joy in breathing the air of the fields; joy in seeing, hearing, living the life of the fields; joy in knowing and loving all that lives with you in your out-of-doors.”- Dallas Lore Sharp

This edition is complete and unabridged and features all of the illustrations from the 1922 printing to provide the best possible reading experience.
