The Ruskin Nature Reader

    Naturevolume 79page66 (1908) | Download Citation



    THE judicious selection of literary extracts which Mr. Bennett has made shows convincingly what a strong appeal to our great writers natural objects and phenomena have always made. Though called after him, the reading-book is by no means confined to excerpts from Ruskin's work; indeed, there are only five such extracts among forty-four. Gilbert White, Tyndall, Izaak Walton, Darwin, and Richard Jefferies are among the writers drawn upon. If the book sends boys and girls out to observe for them-selves, as Mr. Bennett hopes it will, it will have served a really useful purpose.

    The Ruskin Nature Reader.

    Being a Collection of Literary Extracts to Accompany a Course of Nature Study. Selected and edited by G. R. Bennett. Pp. ix+236. (London: J. M. Dent and Co., n.d.) Price 1s. 9d.
