Categories: Nonfiction

John Burroughs was a very prolific writer known as the author of more than thirty books and as the founder of a new genre in literature called the nature essay. Born in the Catskill Mountains, from hi


s childhood he was carried away with the beauty of the nature and later depicted it in his novels. The Breath of Life is a bright example of such genre which teaches simple people to love and appreciate nature. Although it was published in 1915 but it does not seem to get old and would be equally interesting for modern readers.
