John Burroughs (1837 – 1921) was a famous American naturalist and essayist from Roxbury, New York.  He was one of the founders of the U.S. conservation movement and has several schools and streets named after him.


This week’s text is his essay, ‘A Young Marsh Hawk’, published in his book, Riverby (1894).  It tells the story of ‘home-schooling’ a young marsh hawk.
