The Adventures of Johnny Chuck

Thornton W. Burgess (1874 - 1965)

The Adventures of Johnny Chuck is another in the long list of children's books by conservationist Thornton W. Burgess. In this story, it is spring time and a young chuck's fancy turns to thoughts of … traveling, protecting one's turf, finding a new home, and yes, love. Along the way, we learn little lessons about life such as there are good and bad kinds of pride, the importance of keeping secrets and that, even in the animal world, the three most important factors in determining the desirability of property are “location, location, location.” (Summary by John Lieder)
