"Sooner or later most men find themselves groaning under the weight of civilization; yearning to escape the ambitions, obligations, and repressions of human society. They find themselves searching for something that was lost when their ancestors abandoned the wilderness to the animals. When opportunity comes they instinctively return to their homeland of an eon ago, and in an animal's world seek the peace their own world withholds."--from Farewell Thou Busy World Bradley, who was the publisher of Ginn & Co., wrote Farewell Thou Busy World in 1935 as a loving elegy for a natural world and an American West that he saw rapidly disappearing. Without rancor, without strident advocacy, he simply provides a wonderful window into nature that lured him from the world of business and anxiety and back into the wild. Farewell Thou Busy World may be one of the most loving and elegantly written nature books ever produced.
