A Little Brother to the Bear
Mooweesuk the Coon is called the bear's little brother by both Indians and naturalists, because of the many ways in which he resembles the "big prowler in the black coat." An absorbing chapter on the coon's secret habits begins this volume, followed by stories about the woodcock, the wildcat, the toad, and many other animals. Two chapters remarkable for their keen insight into the hidden life of animals close this volume,─one on Animal Surgery, describing some of the ways in which wild animals treat their wounds; the other on Hunting without a Gun, showing the joy of following even the large and dangerous animals with the desire only to be near and understand them.

The Point of View
The little ones came out of their den and began
Leaping out of the treetop and hurling him
Whitooweek the Hermit
one of the chicks was resting upon the mothers
Once my old dog Don started a woodcock
A Woodcock Genius
Then he too shot over the rock
He drove off a mink and almost killed
A flash of silver following the quick jerk
Escaped at last by swimming an icy river
The bear and her cubs are gathering blue
When Upweekis goes hunting
The soft tongue struck one of his trailing
Mooween had been here many times ahead
Lunged away at a terrific pace
