The Forester's Manual

Regular price $18.99

"The Forester's Manual" is the second part of the "Scout Manual", a series of instructional books written for the Boy Scouts of America by Ernest Thompson Seton. This volume looks at the subject of forestry, concentrating on the identification of Eastern North America trees. "The Forester's Manual" will appeal to those with an interest in forestry and is not to be missed by collectors of vintage scouting literature. Ernest Thompson Seton (1860 - 1946) was an English author and wildlife artist who founded the Woodcraft Indians in 1902. He was also among the founding members of the Boy Scouts of America, established in 1910. He wrote profusely on this subject, the most notable of his scouting literature including "The Birch Bark Roll" and the "Boy Scout Handbook". Seton was also an early pioneer of animal fiction writing, and he is fondly remembered for his charming book "Wild Animals I Have Known" (1898). Other notable works by this author include: "Lobo, Rag and Vixen" (1899), "Two Little Savages" (1903), and "Animal Heroes" (1911). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
