Fine. Appears unread. This is the true-life story of Mason A. Walton (1838-1917) who lived alone for 33 years in a primeval forest in Gloucester, Massachusetts studying the intelligence of animal life. He did, in fact, "talk to the animals, " and was greatly admired by those who visited his log cabin to listen to his warm, touching stories about his intimate relationship with Cape Ann's wildlife. A Mark Twain look-alike and Thoreau-type naturalist, he played a small, but signficant, role in introducing the study of natural history into the American classroom.
