He was a prolific author, active advocate for the protection of endangered species and habitats, friend of influential patrons, and a leading proponent of the Boy Scouts of America.

In this book, published in 1922, Hornaday reflects on his personal involvement with a wide range of animals, both wild and captive. In "The Minds and Manners of Wild Animals," he discusses the personality traits and behaviorisms of apes, elephants, bears, deer, birds, snakes and other species. Of special interest is "The Laws of the Flocks and Herds," which is a kind of political manifesto declaring the rights and privileges of the animal kingdom - still very much espoused by modern animal rights activists.

This masterfully crafted eBook is a faithful presentation of the 1922 first edition, complete with some thirty illustrations. it is fully-searchable and fully-printable. (249pp, 2.9 Mb)
