“Seton was a national figure who had a huge effect on the way people thought about the natural world in North America.” —David Attenborough.
This is the intriguing story of one of the world’s first conservationists, who served as the inspiration behind the Boy Scouts of America and dedicated his life to preserving nature and promoting outdoor youth education. Celebrated in text and visuals, Ernest Thompson Seton features more than 100 of Seton’s paintings and illustrations.
