The Animal World, A Book of Natural History
by Theodore Wood
Publisher: The University Society 1909
Number of pages: 508
This volume is a sketch of the animal life of the whole world. More than a sketch it could not be in the space at the author's command; but he has so skilfully selected his examples to illustrate both the natural groups and the faunas which they represent, that his work forms a most commendable ground-plan for the study of natural history.

A superbly illustrated book of the biggest animals, both living and extinct, that have inhabited the world. The animals are drawn to scale, as are the humans included in each picture to show proportion. This makes any number of comparisons possible.

America is a land of trees. They grow almost everywhere in our country. Most of us see them so often that we sometimes forget how important they are. You can think of many things that we wouldn't have if there were no trees.
