Excerpt from The Nature Lovers' Treasury
Many collections of Nature poetry have been made; among them two recent compilations by men eminently fitted to speak with authority. These volumes, edited by Bliss Carman and John Burroughs, are notable because they are selected from ... two different standpoints, that of a poet and that of a naturalist. There is a third point of view, which is that of the Lover of Nature who is neither poet nor naturalist, but who has, nevertheless. A keen appreciation of all the life giving forces which are to be found in Nature's realms.
As the demands of civilization increase, there comes an urgent call to men who have grown weary in the struggle and turmoil of cities to seek refreshment and healing amid Nature's solitudes. It is a repetition of the old myth of Hercules and Antaeus. Whenever men are well-nigh worsted in life's con¿ict, let them but be brought in contact with mother earth and they shall go forth strengthened and heartened.
