From the Introduction: Within comparatively recent years a sympathy with Nature and an appreciation of it have developed, and a multitude of people now feel a responsibility for the preservation of our birds and mammals and various other forms of harmless or useful wild life so that they may continue to lend the animation and joy of their presence. The earth would be a dreary and forlorn place if the innumerable birds and mammals and many other form of wild life were destroyed. With the development of powers to see and to appreciate comes a feeling of sympathy and love for Nature, and it hoped that the readers of this book may each and all have awakened an active desire to help and perpetuate our wild life.
