Book Excerpt

d in time; and it was not a slow thought for a woodchuck, either--just a trifle better, indeed, than my own.

This was the first time I had caught the woodchuck away from his hole. He had left his old burrow in the huckleberry hillside, and dug a new hole under one of my young peach-trees. I had made no objection to his huckleberry hole. He used to come down the hillside and waddle into the orchard in broad day, free to do and go as he pleased; but not since he began to dig under the peach-tree.

I discovered this new hole when it was only a foot deep, and promptly filled it with stones. The next morning the stones were out and the cavity two feet deeper. I filled it up again, driving a large squarish piece of rock into the mouth, tight, certainly stopping all further work, as I thought.

There are woodchucks that you can discourage and there are those that you can't. Three days later the piece of rock and the stones were piled about the butt of the tree and covered with fresh earth, while the hole ran

Very good nature writing, this book reads more like a story than scientific observation. "Mux" taught me a habit of a racoon I didn't know. He focuses on birds from his roof in the city and meadows and marshes in the country.
This is a book of articles on various nature subjects. It is a really enjoyable read. I would have liked strolling the woods or shores with him.
