My reading of John Burroughs works continues with his second volume of collected essays, Winter Sunshine 1875 With our warming winters, note that according to Burroughs, Catskills maple sugaring would last into April, whereas this year it was done by the beginning of March For birders and walkers, Burroughs is indeed a kindred spirit He extols the virtues of walking, and laments the failure of most Americans to do so I can t imagine his feelings today Looking forward to the next volume, Birds and Poets.FACT Twelve U.S schools have been named after Burroughs.QUOTE If I say to my neighbor, Come with me, I have great wonders to show you, he pricks up his ears and comes forthwith but when I take him on the hills under the full blaze of the sun, or along the country road, our footsteps lighted by the moon and stars, and say to him, Behold, these are the wonders, these are the circuits of the gods, this we now tread is a morning star, he feels defrauded, and as if I had played him a trick And yet nothing less than dilatation and enthusiasm like this is the badge of the master walker. After reading several John Muir books I must admit I find Borroughs a bit meh and not as interesting there s of a country gentleman s diary over his writing musings about the weather, little anecdotes about traps, shooting and hunting dogs play a large part in his interactions with nature and he s quite prejudiced, which at times is a bit funny read with modern eyes. *Ebook ⇲ Winter Sunshine ⇟ This is a pre 1923 historical reproduction that was curated for quality Quality assurance was conducted on each of these books in an attempt to remove books with imperfections introduced by the digitization process Though we have made best efforts the books may have occasional errors that do not impede the reading experience We believe this work is culturally important and have elected to bring the book back into print as part of our continuing commitment to the preservation of printed works worldwide.
