wednesday = books

I bought this book a couple weekends ago at the thrift store for 75 cents.

Title: Flat Tail
Authors: Alice Crew Gall & Fleming Crew
Illustrator: W.Langdon Kihn
Publisher: Oxford University Press
Copyright: 1935 {mine is the fifth printing in 1944}

It was hard to select which illustrations to show, there are many in the book and they are all wonderful.

After looking through this book I have a little bit of that feeling I get when I walk in the woods…calm, entranced by nature and thankful for the animals I share the woods with.
