First published in 1905, "Ways of Nature" is a collection of essays by American naturalist John Burroughs. John Burroughs (1837 - 1921) was an American naturalist, essayist, and active member of the . conservation movement. Within them, Burroughs explores the idea of bird intelligence, which he maintains had been generally misjudged by his contemporaries due to a "growing tendency to humanize the lower animals". Burroughs' work was incredibly popular during his lifetime, and his legacy has lived on in the form of twelve . Schools named after him, as well as Burroughs Mountain, and the John Burroughs Association.

Ways of Nature - John Burroughs.

No doubt Scott’s large, generous way of looking at things kin-dles the imagination and touches the sentiments more than does this minute way of the specialist. There is coarse print and ne print; there are obscure signs and hieroglyphics.

If you are a nature lover, you will like this book. Burroughs in of the old time naturalists who loves to walk out in the natural world and just observe. Some of his habits was the shooting os birds to help in identification. He, of course did not have guides we have now with colors very correct. He later gave up this practice. Sadly, we do not have wide areas if undeveloped land to walk through. His descriptions do a lot to take us back yo that time. Well worth reading.

Excellent Foundation Literature on this subject. Well written and stands as seminal treatise.

This is an informative, entertaining book to read. I highly recommend it especially for anyone that enjoys nature and reading about it.

As an amateur naturalist myself, I was hoping for more of the observational writing that Burroughs does so well. This more opinionated style is not what I was hoping for, but it's an,interesting read nonetheless. It's quite interesting to read about his ideas on animal intelligence and compare them to what we now know.

I have not completed reading this book but I find it very interesting in the observations Mr. Burroughs makes. Most people don't see things with his detail. Makes you want to slow down and observe too.

Simple to read - held interest - pages turned easily - I passed the book along to someone who expressed interest.
