About the Author

In his realistic prose, Sergei Aksakov (1791–1859) captured the idyllic outdoor pursuits of his youth. He wrote two other books based on his life, A Russian Gentleman and Years of Childhood. Nikolai Gogol, a friend and correspondent of Aksakov and regarded by many as the father of modern Russian realism, once wrote to Aksakov, “Your birds and fishes are more real than my men and women.”
