西顿是世界著名野生动物画家、博物学家、作家、探险家、环境保护主义者、印第安文化的积极传播者、“美洲林学知识小组联盟”的奠基人、美国童子军的创始人之一。西顿出生在英国,六岁时和家人一起来到加拿大。他从小就热爱大自然,悉心观察、研究大自然里的飞禽走兽。一个崭新而辽阔的艺术世界,浓郁的人文气息,使我们获得了无法替代的审美体验。本书虽然是讲罗尔夫在森林,但绝不仅仅只是讲述罗尔夫和他的狗查克在森林的故事。书通过讲述了一个个生动而又美妙的故事向我们介绍了许多花样繁多而又实用的户外生存技巧,譬如如何搭一个帐篷,用弓钻生活。如果你喜欢户外狂野的事物,野外,并且在其中沉醉,那么这本书正适合你。

Although the name of the book is Rolf in the Woods, it sure isn't the story of Rolf and his dog Skookum-chuck. An excellent and wonderfully told story with how-to instructions for a variety of outdoor skills, such as building a teepee to a bow-drill fire starter. If you love wild things, wild places, and immersing yourself in them, do yourself a favor and read this story.

欧内斯特·汤普森·西顿(Ernest Seton Thompson ,1860-1946),世界著名野生动物画家、博物学家、作家、探险家、环境保护主义者、印第安文化的积极传播者、“美洲林学知识小组联盟”的奠基人、美国童子军的创始人之一。西顿出生在英国,六岁时和家人一起来到加拿大。他从小就热爱大自然,悉心观察、研究大自然里的飞禽走兽,其小说《我所知道的野生动物》于1898年出版后获得了极大的成功。这本书使他在经济上获得了独立,并使他赢得了“世界动物小说之父”的美誉和美国总统西奥多·罗斯福的友谊。

Ernest Thompson Seton (August 14, 1860 – October 23, 1946) was an author (published in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the US), wildlife artist, founder of the Woodcraft Indians, and one of the founding pioneers of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA). Seton also influenced Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of Scouting. His notable books related to Scouting include The Birch Bark Roll and The Boy Scout Handbook. He is responsible for the appropriation and incorporation of what he believed to be American Indian elements into the traditions of the BSA.

In this story I have endeavoured to realize some of the influences that surrounded the youth of America a hundred years ago, and made of them, first, good citizens, and, later, in the day of peril, heroes that won the battles of Lake Erie, Plattsburg, and New Orleans, and the great sea fights of Porter, Bainbridge, Decatur, Lawrence, Perry, and MacDonough.I have especially dwelt in detail on the woodland and peace scouting in the hope that I may thus help other boys to follow the hard-climbing trail that leads to the higher uplands.
