In "The Living Wilderness", Mr. Montgomery gives us a book that has been in the making for sixty years, most of which have been spent by the author in the wilderness areas of the United States observing and studying wildlife as few other living Americans have been privileged to do. Here is a personal acquaintanceship with wild animals as they live out their lives in their native habitat, with a detailed description of their manner of life, their habits, their individual traits, lovingly related by a peerless storyteller. This is no encyclopedic reference work designed to gather dust on the shelves of a library; it is a book to be read, loved, and treasured by nature lovers of every age, for in these pages Mr. Montgomery's wilderness friends live as Nature intended them to live, obeying the laws of the world that decree the strong and the cunning shall survive to maintain the balance of nature that ruled the wilderness for centuries before man stepped in with his guns, his traps, and his poisons. Here the reader is told where to look for existing wild animals today, how to observe them and learn their ways, how to understand and appreciate their individual traits, and how to respect their ways of life.

Rutherford G. Montgomery, was one of the most-widely read and best-loved nature-writers in the country, and wrote well over a hundred books of fiction, most of them involving his favorite "friends of the wilderness". "The Living Wilderness" is a distillation of his personal experiences with wildlife, a recapitulation of the breadth and depth of his observation and knowledge of the wild creatures which we seldom see-unless we look for them.
