TWO TREES , Together with, Gabby and the Forest Trees,, Nofziger, Ed
9 Nofziger, Ed TWO TREES , Together with, Gabby and the Forest Trees,
Washington D.C. American Tree Association 1946 Paperbound Very Good 
col. paper wraps, stapled at spine, unpaginated, (51 p), illustrated, story and pictures in linoleum blocks by Ed Nofziger; acknowledgment to Allen W. Bratton, The artist, Ed Nofziger was born in California. During WWII his religious conviction led him to declare himself a conscientious objector and in 1943 he was conscripted and assigned to a Forest Service station in Cooperstown, New York. It was during this time that Nofziger used his artistic talent and imagination to create Joe Beaver (JOE BEAVER does not appear in this example, the title characters are, Ashton and Elmer, two little trees) as a teaching tool to promote conservation. Joe Beaver was a great success and the Forest Service began to use him to promote forest management. He is the forerunner of Smokey the Bear and Woodsy Owl. Later Nofziger would be employed in full time animation, working for UPA studios drawing "Mister Magoo" cartoons and later for Hanna-Barbera where he drew "Ruff and Ready" This small item is an early contribution to the promotion of forest conservation in the United States and as such is worth saving. Nofziger died in 2000. In his Los Angeles Times obituary a fellow artist Roger Armstrong gave him his due as one of "the finest cartoonist of animals in the last half-century." Size: 8 vo,.

11 Parker, Gerry; MEN OF THE AUTUMN WOODS; Non Resident Big Game Hunting in New Brunswick, The Golden Years 1885 1935; Signed By Author
Sackville, New Brunswick, Privately Published 2004 First Edition Paperbound Fine Signed by Author
pictorial paper wraps,xviii, 264, illustrated throughout with b & white illustrations from photographs, 2 pp bibliography, A much needed work on the development of the business of big game hunting in New Brunswick. All the great hunting guides are here. their stories told in detail. The hunters are here .Babe Ruth , the wealthy American businessmen who were the first to visit the wilderness of big game , caribou, moose, deer. A well researched, well illustrated book , a great delight for lovers of the outdoors. From the Prologue ----- New Brunswick has a history rich in stories, tales and images of its famous salmon rivers, and the sports and guides who plied their waters but little attention has been given to the sport of nonresident big-game hunting. I have written this book to address that neglect. Although it is intended primarily for the enjoyment of the hunter, it should also appeal to those who accept the sport and share the pleasures of a bygone era captured through the camera's lens and the pen of those who walked the trails before. There were many early guides and sports whose accomplishments are now forgotten - victims of the ravages of time. Living relatives are several lifetimes removed and it is with these descendants that the photographs, artifacts and stories are entrusted. But with each new generation bonds with the past are fading; personal ties to dusty and tattered photo albums with nameless faces, worn maps and soiled journals weaken. Most photographs and written accounts of hunting in the early years of the 20th century were left to us by American sportsmen - the paying clients. They brought with them their guns, cameras, pens and diaries and later, in the comfort of their homes, wrote about their hunting adventures in the great Canadian wilderness. Some of their articles appeared in popular outdoor magazines and journals of the day. Others were personal accounts of a particular hunting trip, returned to the guide as an expression of appreciation for a memorable woodland experience. A few of those "illustrated journals" are intact although, regrettably, many of the smiling faces of the early sports, and guides, remain a mystery. But they are all we have. They allow us to share with them a moment during a pleasureable hunting experience somewhere in the backwoods of the province. We begin our journey with one of those early journals - a 1904 hunt for moose and caribou by two American sports from Pennsylvania into the Northwest Miramichi with New Brunswick guide Arthur Pringle. A short review of the moose, caribou and white-tailed deer leads us into the development of early game laws, the guides and their sports, the New Brunswick Guides Association and New Brunswick's participation at the early American Sportsmen's Shows. It is the hope of the author that this book leaves the reader with a greater awareness and understanding of the charming story of early non-resident sports, their guides, and the golden years of big-game hunting. It was a fascinating and romantic period of New Brunswick history - it should not be forgotten. Size: 4 to., (27 Cm)

(from the preface) a beautiful production! The Atlantic Forests of South America hold a great concentration of biodiversity, but most of this habitat has been destroyed. Very little of the ATlantic rainforest of southeast Brazil, northwast ARgentina and eastern Paraguy remains, and the forests that survive are highly fragmented. This region has one of the highest concentrations of endemic bird species anywhere in the world, and no less than 68% of all its bird species are considered to be rare. Many ecologists have predicted that such massive deforestation in the tropics and sub-tropics will cause and extinction crisis, (from the dust jacket.
