John Burroughs

One of my favorite old naturalist/writers (and early conservationist) is John Burroughs (1837 - 1921)
Google books has a fair amount of Burroughs' work available for viewing (free) over at their site:


Burroughs' material also available over at Project Gutenberg, here:


and Wikipedia entry for Burroughs here:


If you enjoy good nature-writing, Burroughs really set the stage (along with his contemporary John Muir) for much of the quality writing done since his day.
