A Little Brother to the Bear and other Animal Stories

William J. Long

Book Overview: 

William J. Long again introduces us to some of the Wood Folk and their stories of living based on his own observations in the woods. In this volume, Mooweesuk the Coon is called the bear's little brother because he so often resembles the "big prowler in the black coat." Also included are chapters on the woodcock, the wildcat, the toad, and many other animals. He likewise includes a chapter on "animal surgery" that describes some ways animals treat their wounds and a chapter on "Hunting without a Gun", which is based on following large animals and observing them. Long's books are great for children and adults alike

So, with all the new facts of animal life before him, he will still live in a blind world and understand nothing until he have the courage to look in his own heart and read.

FEW knew the way to the little house in the rocks where the Little Brother to the Bear lived. It was miles away from every other house but one, in the heart of the big still woods.

A great book about wildlife and the amazing things that happen in the wilderness.
I heard some insights from this book that compare to what scientists say today about animals as if they had never been said before.

I love Long's gentle, humorous descriptions of the various

Fun stories about watching animals and the amazing things they do. Very observant and entertaining.

Everything about this book is beautiful. It is a great reproduction of the original, including the many illustrations and the text. Not only do we learn about the raccoon and the bear (the “little brother” to the bear), but we also learn much about the woodcock, the lynx, the toad, the bear, the kin
