Excerpt from Outdoor Pastimes of an American Hunter While a man is known by the friends he has, he is judged by the friend he is, and it is during the hours of his relaxations, and the periods of vacation from his routine work, that a man s personality is seen and judged by his friends. His public acts, if he be in public Office, are readily understood by them as the logical consequence of the characteristics they have learned to know, and have seen expressed in his hours of relaxation. By the great mass of the people of the United States Theodore Roosevelt was judged only by his public life, and the expression of his personality was seen through his fulfilment of public office. Fortunately for the traditions concerning him, soon after his death the book, Theodore Roosevelt s Let ters to His Children appeared, which moulded those traditions nearer reality than they ever otherwise would have been, for the majority Of men who had judged him by his public career alone, saw then in these letters the real personality with all the charm of its human quali ties. It would seem in the introduction to one of the books, which contains the records of trips taken by him for re laxation, or his short essays describing his observations and his thoughts at these times, that it would be most fitting to consider Theodore Roosevelt as a companion.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Outdoor Pastimes of an American Hunter Dear Oom John: - Every lover of outdoor life must feel a sense of affectionate obligation to you. Your writings appeal to all who care for the life of the woods and the fields, whether their tastes keep them in the homely, pleasant farm country or lead them into the wilderness. It is a good thing for our people that you should have lived; and surely no man can wish to have more said of him. I wish to express my hearty appreciation of your warfare against the sham nature-writers - those whom you have called the yellow journalists of the woods. From the days of AEsop to the days of Reinecke Fuchs, and from the days of Reinecke Fuchs to the present time, there has been a distinct and attractive place in literature for those who write avowed fiction in which the heroes are animals with human or semi-human attributes. This fiction serves a useful purpose in many ways, even in the way of encouraging people to take the right view of outdoor life and outdoor creatures; but it is unpardonable for any observer of nature to write fiction and then publish it as truth, and he who exposes and wars against such action is entitled to respect and support. You in your own person have illustrated what can be done by the lover of nature who has trained himself to keen observation, who describes accurately what is thus observed, and who, finally, possesses the additional gift of writing with charm and interest. You were with me on one of the trips described in this volume, and I trust that to look over it will recall the pleasant days we spent together.
