Quotes on Ernest Thompson Seton

“Although known best as a writer of animal stories, he dedicated a large part of his life to helping the Indian wherever he could; but more, to helping the Whiteman realize the value of the doctrines by which the Redman lived in the days of his unspoiled grandeur.”
Julia M. Seton, wife of E.T. Seton

“... Seton portrayed life as he saw it—in bold, living colors and words. He made the natural world come alive before be very eyes of millions.... He was a writer who thrilled readers with his animal stories, and a frontiersman who was recognized by Native Americans as an expert on their own religions.”
National Wildlife Federation Conservation Hall of Fame
