"His place as a naturalist, woodsman, artist, author, has long been accorded him, and he himself says: 'My enemies have been few, and my friends numerous.' I have tried only to pub the man before my readers, and in his own words as far as possible, that they may know what he was, not what others thought he was." - Introduction.
