1917. This volume is retold for young people by Louise Seymour Hasbrouck with illustrations by Elias Goldberg. J.H. Fabre, as some few people know, is the author of half a score of well-filled volumes in which, under the title of "Souvenirs Entomologiques", he has set down the results of fifty years of observations, study and experiment on the insects that seem to us the best-known and the most familiar: different species of wasps and wild bees, a few gnats, flies, beetles and caterpillars; in a word, all those vague, unconscious, rudimentary and almost nameless little lives which surround us on every side and which we contemplate with eyes that are amused, but already thinking of other things, when we open our window to welcome the first hours of spring, or when we go into the gardens or the fields to bask in the blue summer days. Some of the selections included in this volume are: "My First Pond"; "The Mining Bees"; "The Hairy Sand-Wasps"; "Parasites"; "The Pine Caterpillar"; "The Truffle-Hunting Beetle"; "The Banded Spider"; "The Crab Spider"; and "The Geometry of the Spider's Web".About the Author:
Jean-Henri Casimir Fabre (December 22, 1823 - October 11, 1915) was a French naturalist, entomologist, and author known for the lively style of his popular books on the lives of insects.Fabre was a popular teacher, physicist, chemist and botanist. However, he is probably best known for his findings in the field of entomology, the study of insects, and is considered by many to be the father of modern entomology.
