This is Gene Stratton Porter s 1910 book, "Music Of The Wild." It is a delightful and thought-provoking celebration of nature written with such grace as to appeal to poetry-lovers and fans of nature writing in equal measures. Gene Stratton-Porter (1863 - 1924) was an American author, naturalist, photographer, and one of the first women to start a movie production company. She published a number of best-selling novels and maintained popular columns in national magazines, including McCalls. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing "Music Of The Wild" now, in an affordable, high-quality, modern edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned biography of the author."
