Thornton W. Burgess was an important and influential American conservationist and a prolific author of entertaining children’s stories. For over 50 years, Burgess published numerous popular books on the flora and fauna of the natural world and wrote a regular newspaper column called “Bedtime Stories”. Often affectionately referred to as the “Bedtime Story-Man”, Burgess celebrated his love for the natural world through humorous and educational stories for children in both his books and in his popular column. First published in 1916, “The Adventures of Buster Bear” is an engaging story of acceptance, tolerance, and kindness. It has been many years since any bears have lived in the Green Forest when Buster Bear moves in and some of the forest’s long-time residents are not happy with their new neighbor and the changes he brings. However, soon Buster makes friends with Little Joe Otter and Chatterer the Red Squirrel in this charming tale. Burgess had a special ability to combine an educational story about the behaviors, habitats, and characteristics of the creatures of the natural world while also captivating audiences both young and old. This edition includes a biographical afterword and the original illustrations by Harrison Cady.
