William Hamilton Gibson: Artist Naturalist Author (Classic Reprint)
Three men have done more than any others to inspire our generation with the love of nature. They are Henry D. Thoreau, John Burroughs, and William Hamilton Gibson. Thoreau, when the generation was young, challenged it to come out of doors, live in a shanty, and see as much of the world as he saw. John Burroughs, in later years, has acted as guide to a multitude of minds, eager to be 'personally conducted' to field and forest. William Hamilton Gibson, besides winning many feet into those 'highways and byways' whose charms he taught us to feel, was fortunate in his exceptional power to bring nature to the very eyes of men in the works of his pencil, with which he made luminous - literally 'illustrated' - his pages. This alone would be a justification of some account of his life and work.
