The Wild Man of the West, by R.M. Ballantyne.
The action of this book takes place entirely in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in North America. We can certainly appreciate the hardness of the life of the hunters in those days, which were during the early part of the nineteenth century. The action is very well narrated, and is very exciting and interesting. All sorts of things are suddenly pulled together in the very last few pages, and it would be quite hard for the reader to guess w...
THE QUADRUPEDS' PIC NIC
C. Whittingham, Tooks Court,
The "Quadrupeds' Pic Nic" is a very humble imitation of Mrs. Dorset's
"Peacock at Home." Even in my imitation I find I am not original. The
Quadrupeds, it appears, have already had an "Elephants' Ball," and a

THE QUADRUPEDS' PIC NIC.
No doubt you have heard how the grasshoppers' feasts
"Excited the spleen of the birds and the beasts;"
How the peacock and turkey "flew into a passion,"

The Butterfly's Ball and the Grasshopper's Feast, by R.M. Ballantyne.
This one of the half dozen or so little books that Ballantyne wrote for young children. Many of these, and certainly the earlier ones, were written under the pseudonym of Comus, but this one went out under his own name, perhaps because by the time it was published in 1874 his own name had become much more celebrated than that of his pseudonym.
It was written for very young children, and very amusing they must have found...
Dawson published over thirty books, the one best remembered today probably being the animal adventure story Finn the Wolfhound (1908)…. His own dog Tynagh and her son Gareth, who was described as the largest and finest specimen of his breed to date, served as the models for Tara and Finn in Finn the Wolfhound (1908). This is probably Dawson’s best-remembered and certainly his most frequently reprinted work: Finn, a champion Irish Wolfhound, is taken from England to Australia where he undergoes a series of adventures, being exhibited as a wild animal in a circus and escaping to live in t...
