A grand Victorian literary foray into the animal kingdom and the peoples and races of mankind. Natural history was a favorite topic of our Victorian predecessors. A spirit of discovery characterized the age, and the public’s hunger to learn more about the people, places and creatures of the earth was nearly insatiable. In NATURE’S WONDERLAND narrative and illustration combine to illuminate nature’s living marvels, all the things that swim, crawl, creep, fly and walk, from the lowliest life forms to man himself.
