Wild Animals I have Known, by Ernest Thompson Seton

PREFACE

"Lobo, King of the Carrumpaw"

Sorry for any confusion; had to get this recorded for the ET Seton Institute.  They requested it for a player they have set up on their site, that plays the earlier two Seton books I'd recorded.  (Cool, huh?)  I figure, while I'm at it, I'll record the rest of the book, and get back to "Flatland when that's done.

Thanks for your patience!

Have you ever thought about publishing an e-book or guest authoring on
other websites? I have a blog centered on the
same topics you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information.
I know my readers would appreciate your work.
If you're even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

\"Lobo\" means \"Wolf\" in Spanish. \"Blanca\" is the feminine form of the word \"White\" in Spanish. Pretty cool names, in my opinion.

Great story, even the sad parts. I never would have thought to pick up this particular book and read it, but, I sure do enjoy listening to you read it.

The part towards the end about Blanca kinda made me sick, though. That was rather graphic.

The Lobo story brought me to tears at the end. There were actually two different documentaries about Seton, one American and one British, that came out just after I recorded this. Till Lobo, Seton was a professional hunter of problem vermin like wolves. After Lobo, wolves weren\'t vermin to him anymore. So he made himself the villain of his own story.

Mostly this made him the a successful naturalist and activist.

The tears at the end could be heard in your voice, and added greatly to the telling of this story, in my opinion.
