All the Great Naturalists
by Donald Culross Peattie
All the great naturalists have been habitual walkers,
for no laboratory, no book, car, train, or plane
takes the place of honest footwork for this calling,
be it amateurs or professionals.
Donald Culross Peattie was born on this day in Chicago in 1898.
Peattie was regarded as the most-read nature writer in America during his time.
