Introduction to The Burgess Animal Book for Children by Thornton W. Burgess
We now begin a new series of stories, all from this book. We will encounter old friends and meet many new ones. Along with Burgess himself, I hope these readings will "stimulat[e] a desire to preserve and protect a priceless heritage ... which a heedless present threatens through wanton and reckless waste to deny the future." I feel a bit like a voice crying in the wilderness but if you're listening, that's enough. Thank you.
