Long's books were finding a large audience and even being issued in schools under the title of The Wood Folk Series. However, his findings and observations clashed with the prevailing scientific wisdom of animal behavior, which believed animals behaved purely on instinct, and could not learn from experience: a bird builds a nest purely by instinct and is not taught the skills required.

Through vivid depictions of a dozen family groupings, the author demonstrates that mother animals and birds often train their young in order to supplement their natural instincts. The deer and her fawns, the black bear and her cubs, the fishhawk and her nestlings, the keen-eyed heron, the stupid porcupine, and the mighty moose are some of the animals whose teachings are described in this book.

A lovely book. I'm a couple of chapters in and taken with the older language patters. It isn't difficult to read, but has the quaint phrases of a generation passed. The voice of the speaker is both innocent and wise.

I simply love this book. I read aloud as we travel by car and in the evening with the family around. It may be old-fashioned but my children have grown up with a love of books. Shool of the Woods is beautifully written and endearing and at the same time educational. It keeps all ages fascinated and looking forward to the next chapter. It's easy to see human characteristics and derive moral lessons in each of the animals observed, making it a great choice for inspiration and guidance. The author takes some of the most ordinary creatures and invites the reader into their world of struggle and survival, play and communication. In the end he devotes a chapter to the process of death in probably the most beautiful way I have ever read. No matter how many times I read this book, I never tire of its beauty or life lessons.

This little book is a treasure. I enjoyed it so much I have shared stories from it many times. I would like my grandson to read it when he's old enough. I regret to say though, I don't think he will get "it". Appreciation for the world of nature and animals in their natural habitat seems to be a thing of the past, as is taking the time to really observe and learn.
And so...I'm keeping this little gem in my library and perhaps in a few generations someone will pick up great-great grandmother's book and find a world so foreign and beautiful they will be touched.
