President Theodore Roosevelt's love of natural history is celebrated in two sketches written by renowned naturalist John Burroughs. The friends shared a two-week trip to Yellowstone in the spring of 1903, in order to observe the wildlife and geologic wonders of America's first national park. The desire was to commune with nature, not to hunt. "I will not fire a gun in the Park, then I shall have no explanations to make," President Roosevelt said. While they had guides, the president was unaccompanied by secret service, personal physician, or secretaries and, remarkably, took an 18-mile trek through hard country completely by himself on one occasion. "He came back as fresh as when he started..."

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

At the time I made the trip to Yellowstone Park with President Roosevelt in the spring of 1903, Ipromised some friends to write up my impressions of the President and of the Park, but I have beenslow in getting around to it. The President himself, having the absolute leisure and peace of theWhite House, wrote his account of the trip nearly two years ago! But with the stress and strain of mylife at "Slabsides,"-administering the affairs of so many of the wild creatures of the woods aboutme, -I have not till this blessed season (fall of 1905) found the time to put on record an account ofthe most interesting thing I saw in that wonderful land, which, of course, was the President himself.When I accepted his invitation I was well aware that during the journey I should be in a storm centremost of the time, which is not always a pleasant prospect to a man of my habits and disposition. ThePresident himself is a good deal of a storm, -a man of such abounding energy and ceaseless activitythat he sets everything in motion around him wherever he goes. But I knew he would be pretty welloccupied on his way to the Park in speaking to eager throngs and in receiving personal and politicalhomage in the towns and cities we were to pass through. But when all this was over, and I foundmyself with him in the wilderness of the Park, with only the superintendent and a few attendants tohelp take up his tremendous personal impact, how was it likely to fare with a non-strenuous personlike myself? I asked. I had visions of snow six and seven feet deep, where traveling could be doneonly upon snow-shoes, and I had never had the things on my feet in my life. If the infernal firesbeneath, that keep the pot boiling so furiously in the Park, should melt the snows, I could see theparty tearing along on horseback at a wolf-hunt pace over a rough country; and as I had not been ona horse's back since the President was born, how would it be likely to fare with me then?I had known the President several years before he became famous, and we had had somecorrespondence on subjects of natural history. His interest in such themes is always very fresh andkeen, and the main motive of his visit to the Park at this time was to see and study in its semidomesticated condition the great game which he had so often hunted during his ranch days; and hewas kind enough to think it would be an additional pleasure to see it with a nature-lover like myself.For my own part, I knew nothing about big game, but I knew there was no man in the country withwhom I should so like to see it as Roosevel

Excerpt from Camping Tramping: With Roosevelt This little volume really needs no intro duction; the, two sketches Of which it is made explain and, I hope, justify them selves. But there is one phase of the President's many-sided character upon which I should like to lay especial em phasis, namely, his natural history bent and knowledge. Amid all his absorbing interests and masterful activities in other fields, his interest and his authority in practical natural history are by no means the least. I long ago had very direct proof Of this statement. In some Of my English sketches, following a Visit to that island in 1882, I had, rather by implication than by positive statement, inclined to the opinion that the European forms of ani mal life were, as a rule, larger and more hardy and prolific than the corresponding.

A woman inVermont wrote me, to protest against the hunting, and hoped I would teach the President to lovethe animals as much as I did, -as if he did not love them much more, because his love is foundedupon knowledge, and because they had been a part of his life. She did not know that I was thencherishing the secret hope that I might be allowed to shoot a cougar or bobcat; but this fun did notcome to me. The President said, "I will not fire a gun in the Park; then I shall have no explanationsto make." Yet once I did hear him say in the wilderness, "I feel as if I ought to keep the camp inmeat. I always have." I regretted that he could not do so on this occasi

Burroughs was a world traveler and wrote of many of his trips in his book "Fresh Fields". One of his most memorable experiences was the time he spent with President Theodore Roosevelt in Yellowstone. He was so taken with the president's true love of nature - down to the smallest creatures. He felt that Teddy Roosevelt was misunderstood and wrote "Camping and Tramping with Roosevelt" to share a side of the president that most people never saw, including his deep love of birds. Burroughs published this book in 1907.This book is printed in its original form so some imperfections or marks may appear, but we believe the work is culturally important enough to preserve it in its original form. The photos of Teddy Roosevelt are a rare treat!(Timeless Classic Books)
