Thornton Burgess was born in 1874 in Sandwich, Massachusetts. While growing up he frequently roamed the fields, woods, and salt marshes of Cape Cod, where he came to know the birds, animals, and plant life well. Later, as a grown man, he told stories about the animals and wildlife he knew and loved to his young son. These stories were first collected in Old Mother West Wind. The volume was the first of over seventy books for Mr. Burgess. His characters - Peter Rabbit, Reddy Fox, Sammy Jay, Happy Jack Squirrel, Johnny Chuck, Jimmy Skunk, and more - are well known to Burgess fans around the world. The Golden Anniversary Edition of Old Mother West Wind is now being issued in paperback, bringing these well-loved tales to a whole new generation of children. Book jacket.
