This new book by Mayne Reid was left in Ms. at his death in 1883, and not until 1889 did his widow place it in the hands of a publisher. Any careful reader of Captain Mayne Reid's tales of adventure will have discovered that one of his strongest points is his accurate description of natural scenery, and it was therefore to be expected that after retiring from his wanderings to his home in Wales he should keep up his taste for natural history-the result of which is the present volume of personal observations of what he saw and heard around him.

The author finds in the lives of the eminent men he introduces, the principles and the characteristics that he desires to impress upon them, and he illustrates his points so simply and clearly and earnestly as to make them more than usually impressive.
