About the Author

Thornton W. Burgess (1874-1965) was a well-known American author, naturalist, and conservationist. Born in Massachusetts, Burgess developed a love of nature from an early age and spent much of his childhood exploring the woods and fields around his home. After completing his education, Burgess worked as a newspaper reporter and eventually turned to writing children's books. His first book, "Old Mother West Wind," was published in 1910 and was an instant success. This was followed by a series of books featuring a cast of animal characters, including "The Adventures of Peter Cottontail," "The Adventures of Sammy Jay," and "The Adventures of Jimmy Skunk." Burgess was also a passionate conservationist and used his writing to promote awareness of the importance of protecting the natural world. He was a strong advocate for the preservation of wildlife habitats and helped to establish several wildlife sanctuaries in Massachusetts. In addition to his writing and conservation work, Burgess was also a respected naturalist and photographer. He traveled extensively throughout North America, studying and documenting a wide variety of animal species. Thornton W. Burgess's books have been beloved by generations of children and continue to be popular today. His legacy as a writer, naturalist, and conservationist has had a lasting impact on the field of children's literature and the world of wildlife conservation.
