More About Ernest Thompson Seton

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Ernest Thompson Seton was born in South Shields, Durham, England, in 1860. His family emigrated to Canada in 1866 and settled near Lindsay, Ontario. Four years later they moved to Toronto, where Seton received his early education. He graduated from the Ontario College of Art in 1879 and pursued further studies at the Royal Academy in England, and at l'Academie Julian in Paris.
Seton returned to Canada in 1881 and joined his brother on a homestead near Carberry, Manitoba. There he made extensive notes on the behaviour of animals and birds, complementing his studies as a naturalist with commissioned work as an illustrator and painter.
His first collection of animal stories, Wild Animals I Have Known (1898), won immediate critical and popular acclaim, and was followed in the next four decades by more than thirty volumes of such fiction.
Seton founded a youth organization, the League of Woodcraft Indians, and in 1910 joined Lord Baden-Powell in establishing the Boy Scouts of America. In the same year, he wrote the Boy Scouts of America Official Manual.
In 1930 Seton moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where he set up Seton Village, a centre for environmentalists, naturalists, and students of North American Indian culture.
Ernest Thompson Seton died in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 1946.

Reviews - What do customers think about Animal Heroes (Dodo Press)?

A Masterpiece  Jan 1, 2002
This one of the best nature books ever written. Seton Thompson's skills in describing the animals, their lives, and even their feelings and thoughts are incredible. Reading this book you you practically live that particular animal's life
Not only are the animal descriptions stunning, but so are the nature ones. Usually when an author describes nature, it puts you to bed. On the other hand Seton's are much more lively and fun to read.
This book is a must read, one of the best nature books ever written. It helps you appreciate hte nature more.
