2.5 I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. There are bold black and white drawings and interesting insights into animal behavior better than Doctor Dolittle's and some lines worth quoting:
"It is a pity that we have to win our pigeons' confidence by feeding their stomachs, but alas! I have noticed that there are many men and women who resemble pigeons in this respect!"
"Such is the price of leadership--the other name of self-sacrifice."
"Can those who see buffalo in captivity ever conceive how beautiful they can be? What a pity that most young people instead of seeing one animal in nature--which is worth a hundred in any zoo--must derive their knowledge of god's creatures from their appearance in prisons!"
