What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

A 'classic,' by my definition, is a book that is always fresh—no matter how many times we read it. This autobiographical book, John Terres's vivid portrayal of wildlife on an old North Carolina farm, should never be allowed to go out of print. It is a true classic by one of America's most perceptive nature writers.—Roger Tory Peterson



We are caught up at once in [Terres's] passionate interest and follow him gladly. . . . Because this book is a work of art we are held in its spell in a timeless world.—May Sarton, New York Times Book Review
