The Story of Doctor Dolittle, Being the History of His Peculiar Life at Home and Astonishing Adventures in Foreign Parts is the wo...rk of well known children's author Hugh Lofting. This book is the first in Lofting's series of novels featuring John Dolittle, a doctor who is able to speak to animals, and has since become a classic of children's literature.The Story of Doctor Dolittle is the reader's introduction to John Dolittle, a character featured in more than ten novels written by Lofting. A practicing medical doctor, Dolittle changes career paths and becomes a veterinarian upon being taught to speak with animals by his pet parrot. This novel tells the tale of Dolittle's voyage to Africa to cure a tribe of monkeys inflicted with a deadly virus. After the pursuing adventures the novel concludes with Dolittle's return to his English village and retirement, which sets the stage for the future novels in Lofting's collection.The Story of Doctor Dolittle is a classic children's tale. The greatest appeal is of course the talking animals, to which Lofting has given distinct personalities and manners of speaking. It should be noted that this republication is of the original version, and thus contains some plot elements that may be considered controversial by modern standards. These elements are a clear indication of the time and place in which this novel was conceived – colonial England in the early twentieth century.The Story of Doctor Dolittle, Being the History of His Peculiar Life at Home and Astonishing Adventures in Foreign Parts is one of the most well known works of children's literature and serves as the introduction to a beloved character. It is a classic novel and one that holds appeal for both children and adults. Fans of the character owe it to themselves to read Lofting's novel and to familiarize themselves with the first tale of Dolittle. read more

Excerpt from Thirty More Famous Stories RetoldIt is now more than a year since you read my "Fifty Famous Stories." Those stories, ...as you will remember, are quite short and easy. Before you had finished your second year at school you could read every one of them without stopping to study the meaning of the words. Many thousands of children have read those fifty stories, and then they have asked for more; and this is my excuse for the present volume.You are older now, and you have learned many things which you did not know when we first became acquainted. You are able to read almost everything. And so, in telling you "Thirty More Famous Stories," I have chosen more difficult subjects and have not been so careful to select the shortest and easiest words. Still, you will not find this book hard to read, neither do I think it will prove to be less interesting than the earlier volume.Nearly all the stories are true, and there are not more than three or four that might not have happened. In every one there is something worth learning and remembering.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Holiday House: A Series of Tales; Dedicated to Lady Diana Boyle"Of all the paper I have blotted, I have written nothi...ng without the intention of some good. Whether 1 have succeeded or not, is for others to judge." Sir William Temple.The minds of young people are now manufactured like webs of linen, all alike, and nothing left to nature. From the hour when children can speak, till they come to years of discretion or of indiscretion, they are carefully prompted what to say, and what to think, and what to look, and how to feel; while in most school-rooms nature has been turned out of doors with obloquy, and art has entirely supplanted her.When a quarrel takes place, both parties are generally in some degree to blame; therefore if Art and Nature could yet be made to go hand in hand towards the formation of character and principles, a graceful and beautiful superstructure might be reared, on the solid foundation of Christian faith and sound morality; so that while many natural weeds and wild flowers would be pruned and carefully trained, some lovely blossoms that spring spontaneously in the uncultivated soil, might still be cherished into strength and beauty, far excelling what can be planted or reared by art.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Balsam Groves of the Grandfather Mountain: A Tale of the Western North Carolina Mountains, Together With Informat...ion Relating to the Section and Its Hotels, Also a Table Showing the Height of Important Mountains, EtcAs the firm foundation of a house is less attractive than the painted columns and modillions which it supports, so the first chapter of our story is the stratum of understanding that underlies a more beautiful fabric of knowledge. It locates the scenes in Western North Carolina, on the great evergreen Grandfather Mountain, whose highest point is the everlasting cornerstone of three counties, Watauga, Caldwell, and Mitchell.The object of the author has been to supply the great need of a book that would introduce to the outside world a section of country which, until recently, has been almost unknown and obscure, but nevertheless is rich in soil, replete with iron ore, and with fine forests of valuable trees, checkered with rapid, flowing streams of limpid water, decked with a thousand hills, fortressed with ponderous mountains tall and rugged, and pictured with wild and varied landscapes.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Child's Own English Book: An Elementary English GrammarOur semi-grammarless age - a period of conflicting opinion...s regarding the teaching of English in lower schools - has resulted in confusion of mind to many pupils, and in discouragement to many upper-class teachers.Because of the writer's firm conviction that the difficulties with the subject in disrepute are largely owing to wrong methods of presentation, an attempt is now made to approach it from a new angle. Two of the strongest factors in child-growth - love of play and a strong dramatic instinct - are used to assist in bringing life to what has usually seemed a "dead language," or, at best, a cordially disliked subject.The query of the anti-grammar group is always, "Of what use to a fifth- or sixth-grade child is knowledge of a noun?" The pro-grammar adherents agree that unless such knowledge is made a part of the child's experience in a vital, organic way, it is futile; but they believe that, as preparation for more advanced, critical study in later years, it is as essential to know early the fundamental structure of the English tongue, as it is to know geographical nomenclature, or the simple elements of arithmetic.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Things Will Take a Turn: A Story for ChildrenI have taken the opportunity kindly offered me by the publishers to revi...se the text of this little story, which was written more than five years ago, and published by them in a series of tales for children.I had forgotten Childie, and the old bookseller, and the bird-fancier with the red nose, and Mrs. White with the terrifying bonnet, and James the footman with the stiff neck. But now, reading the little book once more, memories of my old friends come back to me; and I fancy I can see Childie, - as I often saw her, - standing at the door of the second-hand book-shop, and looking out anxiously for customers, or waving her handkerchief to Mr. Jones, or smiling at some bit of fun which she and the bird-fancier had in common.But the little narrow street has been pulled down, and the bird-shop and the book-shop have given place to more stately buildings. So that land my readers would search in vain for the queer old dwelling where the parrot was taught to say: 'Things will take a turn!'About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Old Stories of the EastThere are few stories which in themselves are more intensely interesting than those that have ...come down to us from antiquity through the medium of the Hebrew Scriptures. Yet they have been so generally and so exclusively employed for the purpose of imparting religious instruction, that their purely literary qualities have not always received the attention which they merit. By very many persons, grown-up people as well as children, they are regarded as being inseparably connected with the services of the Sunday school and the Church, and hence scarcely to be thought of during the secular days of the week. There is really no good reason why this should be so. Indeed, there is no good reason why children in the day schools should not read these old stories of the East with as much freedom and with as eager zest as they peruse the classic myths of Greece or the ever-charming tales with which the world of modern fiction abounds.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Burgess Flower Book for ChildrenBecause of the story method of treatment, and also because of the limited vocabul...ary of the little child, the use of scientific names and even the names of most Of the parts of plants and flowers, save in the appendix for older people, has been avoided. This necessarily prevents that accuracy of description which the adult may desire. The vast number of flowers, which is America's rich heritage, makes it impossible to describe within the confines of a volume of this size more than a limited number. NO small part of the task was the selection of theflowers to be included. Most of them were chosen because of their wide distribution. For the most part, only the commoner flowers, those most likely to be encountered in walks in field, meadow and woodland, have been chosen. A few of the rarer ones have been included because of their beauty, and the hope that the desire to find these may act as a stimulant to interest.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Swedish Fairy BookThe following volume of Swedish fairy-tales represents a careful choice, after the best origina...l sources, of those examples of their kind which not only appeared most colorful and entertaining, but also most racially Swedish in their flavor. For the fairy-tales of each of the three Scandinavian countries, Sweden, Denmark and Norway, have a distinct local color of their own. The wealth of material available has made it possible to give due representation to most types of fairy-tales, from the stories of older origin, the tales of giant, troll, and werewolf, to such delightful tales as "Lasse, My Thrall", and "The Princess and the Glass Mountain," colored with the rich and ornate stylistic garb of medieval chivalric poesy. There has been no attempt to "rewrite" these charming folk- and fairy-tales in the translation. They have been faithfully narrated in the simple, naive manner which their traditional rendering demands. And this is one reason, perhaps, why they should appeal to young American readers - for young America by instinct takes kindly to that which is straightforward and sincere, in the realm of fairy-tale as in life itself.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from A Tour Round My GardenDo you remember, my friend, the day on which you set out for that long and delightful tour, the... preparations for which had so long engrossed your time and attention?I called in the morning, to pass a few minutes with you, as I had been accustomed to do, but not being aware that it was the day fixed on for your departure, I was surprised at the unusual state of your house: everybody appeared uh settled and busy, and the servants were running up and down stairs unceasingly. An elegant travelling carriage, with the horses harnessed, was standing in the court-yard. At the moment I entered, the postilion had already placed one of his huge boots in the stirrup, and one of your servants.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Adventures of a Nature GuideThe people of the United States have within the past generation created national park...s, state parks, city parks, and made wild-life reservations, recognizing their higher values to people, for their uses in education, recreation, and hopefulness. I wish that every park had a nature guide and that every wild place might early become a park.There now are a number Of Cabinet positions, each with a secretary to control and direct its work. But is it not time to have a Directory of Parks and Recreation, something for all time and for all peo ple? Instead of one man directing this there should be a number, a board of directors, who are directly responsible to the public. This should be a department separate from and independent Of all Cabinet positions and should outrank them.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Big Bear of Arkansas: And Other Sketches, Illustrative of Characters and Incidents in the South and South-WestA n...ew vein of literature, as original as it is inexhaustible in its source, has been opened in this country within a very few years, with the most marked success. Up to the period when the publication of the first American "Sporting Magazine" was commenced - at Baltimore, in 1829 - and which was immediately followed by the publication, in New York, of the "Spirit of the Times," there existed no such class of writers as have, since that recent day, conferred signal honour on the rising literature of America. The New York "Constellation," then edited by that favoured disciple of Momus, the late Dr. Green, was the only journal in the country which preferred any claim to popular favour on the ground of being expressly devoted to wit and humor - to the fun and frolic, the flash and fashion of the day. But the novel design and scope of the "Spirit of the Times" soon fixed attention; and erelong it be came the nucleus of a new order of literary talent.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Kwaidan: Stories and Studies of Strange ThingsIt may be doubted whether any orien tal race has ever had an interprete...r gifted with more perfect insight and sympathy than Laf cadio Hearn has brought to the translation of Japan into terms of our occidental speech. His long residence in that country, his flexibility of mind, poetic imagination, and wonderfully pel lucid style have fitted him for the most delicate of literary tasks. He has seen marvels, and he has told of them in a marvelous way. There is scarcely an aspect of contemporary Japanese life, scarcely an element in the social, political, and military questions involved in the present conflict with Russia which is not made clear in one or another of the books with which he has charmed American readers.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Scenes and Legends of the North of Scotland: Or the Traditional History of CromartyThe present edition contains about... one-third more matter than the first. The added chapters, however, like those which previously composed the work, were almost all written about twenty years ago,1 in leisure hours snatched from a laborious employment, or during the storms of winter, when the worker in the open air has to seek shelter at home. But it is always less disadvantageous to a traditionary work, that it should have been written early than late. Of the materials wrought up into the present volume, the greater part was gathered about from fifteen to twenty years earlier still; and though some thirty-five or forty years may not seem a very lengthened period, such has been the change that has taken place during the lapse of the generation which has in that time disappeared from the earth, that perhaps scarce a tithe of the same matter could be collected now. We live in an age unfavourable to tradition, in which the written has superseded the oral. As the sun rose in his strength, the manna wasted away like hoar frost from off the ground.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Land's End: A Naturalist's Impressions, in West CornwallCornwall to me was just the Land's End dark Bolerium, sea...t of storms -that famous foreland of which a vast but misty picture formed in childhood remains in the mind, and if I ever felt any strong desire to visit Cornwall it was to look upon that scene. Then came a day in November, 1905, when, having settled to go away somewhere for a season, I all at once made up my mind to visit the unknown pen insula and to go straight away to the very end. It almost astonished me when I alighted from my train at St. Ives to think I had travelled three hundred and twenty odd miles with less discomfort and weariness than I usually experience on any journey of a hundred.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from The Legend of the Glorious Adventures of Tyl Ulenspiegel: In the Land of Flanders ElsewhereThe book here offered in E...nglish to the English-speaking public has long been known and admired by students as the first and perhaps the most notable example of modern Belgian literature. Its author was born of obscure parentage in 1827, and, after a life passed in not much less obscurity, died in 1879. The ten years which were devoted to the composition of "The Legend of Tyl Ulenspiegel" were devoted to what proved, for de Coster, little more than a labour of love. Recognition came to him but from the few, and it was not till some thirty years after his death that an official monument was raised at Brussels to his memory, and an official oration delivered in his praise by Camille Lemonnier.To the undiscerning among his contemporaries de Coster may have appeared little else than a rather eccentric journalist with archaeological tastes. For a time, indeed, he held a post on the Royal Commission which was appointed in 1860 to investigate and publish old Flemish laws. And towards the end of his life he became a Professor of History and French Literature at the Military School in Brussels. Never, certainly, has a work of imagination, planned on an epic scale, been composed with a closer regard for historical detail than this Legend. But if our present age is less likely to be held by this than by those other qualities in the book of vitality and passion, it can only be that de Coster poured into his work not merely the knowledge and accuracy of an historian, but the love as well and the ardour of a poet and a patriot.The objection - if it be an objection - that de Coster borrowed unblushingly from bis predecessors need never be disputed. His style is frankly Rabelaisian.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books. Find more at www.forgottenbooks.com read more

Excerpt from Early History of NashvilleGeography and history cannot be entirely separated. As this dependence one upon the other i...s evident, is it not best to begin them together? Will not this early connection of the two make the study clearer to the child in after years?And, as all teachers know, when introducing any sub j ect, we begin with an object or a thought which is familiar to the children; so it follows that the geography and history of the land over which the little child walks every day, of the hills, valleys and streams which he sees from his own window, is the proper introduction to the geography and history of the world.Another and more important thought presents itself. The true patriot must first be true to his own home. So by fostering, in the right way, a love for home, we are strength ehing a broad patriotism.The children of the British Isles have for hundreds of years learned first at their mother's knee of heroic deeds done at their own doors. After that they have learned their country's history. This has given them a respect for their own people and a belief in themselves which has helped to make their nation a world force.We forget this. In our own history stories we tell our children of great things that occurred in other countries; or, if within the limits of our own country, a thousand miles, or perhaps more, from Nashville.But why neglect our own? We, too, have much to tell that is important to our national history. Even if we did not, it were still pedagogically correct to begin at home.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

In the bed of the river there were peb bles and boulders, dry and white in the sun, and the water was clear and swiftly moving and blue in the channels. Troops went by the house and down the road and the dust they raised powdered the leaves of the trees. The trunks of the trees too were dusty and the leaves fell early that year and we saw the troops march ing along the road and the dust rising and leaves, stirred by the breeze, falling and the soldiers marching and afterward the road bare and white except for the leaves.The plain was rich with crops; there were many orchards of fruit trees and beyond the plain the moun tains were brown and bare. There was fighting in' the mountains and at night we could see the flashes from the artillery.
