Wild Nature Won By Kindness
The Animal World
Eliza Brightwen, a popular Victorian-era naturalist, re-counts her many experiences with the wild creatures she encountered on her English estate. She devotes a chapter to each animal describing their behavior and how she won their trust. Brightwen clearly has a special connection with birds as many chapters are devoted to her feathered friends. The book is both informative and entertaining, providing details about each animal in a heart-felt tale.
