In Secrets of the Woods, author William Long vividly "word sketches" the lives of the wood-mouse, otter, kingfisher, red squirrel, partridge, deer, and other wood folk. Through many fascinating anecdotes, Secrets of the Woods shares with the reader what can be learned of the habits of animals through keen observation over a long period of time-details that elude the casual visitor to the woods. William Long is a great nature writer who manages, through Secrets of the Woods, to teach valuable lessons from nature to children in an interesting story format. The stories are those that long personally saw and experienced in the wild.

About the Author:

William J. Long (1857-1952) was an American writer, naturalist and minister who lived and worked in Stamford, Connecticut. As a naturalist, Long left Stamford every March, often with his two daughters Lois and Cesca, to travel to "the wilderness" of Maine. There they would stay until the first snows of October, although sometimes he would stay all winter. In the 1920s, he began spending his summers in Nova Scotia, claiming "the wilderness is getting too crowded". Long wrote of his wilderness experiences in the books Ways of Wood Folk, Wilderness Ways, Wood-folk Comedies, Northern Trails, Wood Folk at School, and many others. Long believed that the best way to experience the wild was to plant yourself and sit for hours on end to let the wild "come to you; and they will!".
