About This Website

Welcome to The Ernest Thompson Seton Pages!

This site was originally developed by Dee Seton Barber and others associated with the Ernest Thompson Seton Institute.  Dee, the adopted daughter of Ernest Thompson Seton and Julia M. Seton,  passed away in 2006.  She devoted much of her life to preserving the legacy of her father.

The Institute is not currently active, but its aims and interests are continued by a number of individuals with a sincere interest in maintaining and preserving the ideals legacy of Ernest Thompson Seton and the Woodcraft movement.

I have been fascinated by the life and legacy of Ernest Thompson Seton for about the last 40 years.  It has been my pleasure to meet people throughout the world while following the trail.

After our recent refreshing of the website, we are able to see a hint of where the website’s visitors are coming from.  Remarkably, we’ve had 222 visitors from 31 countries in just two weeks time. That speaks volumes about the continuing interest of people world-wide in Seton’s legacy.

We look forward to expanding the site and adding much more material.  In the near future, we expect to add more graphical material and, hopefully, some sound recordings.  Check back often!

We invite you to explore the site as well as the links we’ve assembled.

If you have questions about the site, corrections or comments, please contact us.

We would further welcome your comments or other material.

Blue Sky!

    To your knowledge:
    I know another true story with this surprising animals that, as it appears in Yellowstone, are also reintroduced in some areas of Spain where they were fired in the past.
    This true story happened in the Spain last emerged from the civil war of 1936-1939. When Marcos a little boy -born in 1946- was just six years old his father, a poor peasant, could not keep him. He thought his son could go by himself if he was down. So, incredible but true in the modern Europe, he sold the kid to a landowner to look after a herd of goats up into the mountains, alone, in the heart of the wild Sierra Morena, in a natural cave surrounded by mountains, in the land of wolves. Marcos lived for twelve years without human contact in the company of wolves, joined his pack, he helped them and wolves protected him from other wolvespacks and brought him hunting, also lived with a snake and an eagle, learned from the animals and talk their language of signs and sounds, in a perfect communion with nature that helped him survive in the solitude of abandonment and lack of love and affection. Finally the Guardia Civil -a spanish rural corps of police- saw him, jump to the mountain where he lived and rescue the boy in 1964. He only played animal sounds. But after his reeducation he told “I never was so happy than between the animals. They were my family.

    A spanish university professor, doctor in sociology (named Gabriel Janer Manila), studied this case and interviewed Marcos after his recovery, then writen a book telling the history “I played with wolves” compiling the sensations and facts lived by Marcos. The book is a tough history of extreme sensitivity and beautifully written, with the craft of a master of nature’s literature.
    the book is publishe only in castillian by
    And I know a film was made in Spain following this book entitled “Entre lobos” (amongst wolves)
