Discard markings from the University of Wyoming library, former owners' names on front and rear endpapers. Burroughs was an American nature writer of extreme popularity in his time. Bill McKibben writes, "If John Muir was the craggy champion of the rugged West, John Burroughs is the lower-key bard of the lower-key, lower-elevation eastern mountains, the patron saint of the weekend cottage in the Berkshires." A contemporary of Thoreau, Whitman, Emerson and Roosevelt, Burroughs waged a campaign against popular but false representations of wildlife. Instead, McKibben writes, "[Burroughs'] quietness works quite powerfully in our over-amplified moment" (American Earth: Environmental Writing Since Thoreau).
