Other the years, Johnson kept a pretty full record of Burroughs' conversations, much of it taken down in notes while he spoke. Johnson's notes were made in longhand and seldom caught complete sentences, but he was able to capture the words and phrases that were peculiarly Burroughs' own. The greater portion of this illustrated book is an attempt, based chiefly on the notes gathered, to give a faithful report of Burroughs' unconventional talk. Its contents include: The Old Farm; Boyhood in the Catskills, The Faults of a City, School days, Teaching in the Groping Years, A Treasury Clerk in Washington, Ideals in Education, Farming beside the Hudson, Rustic Housekeeping, Walt Whitman, Reading and Writing, Slabsides in the Woods, Comments on Religion, The Charm of Nature, Correspondence, Woodchuck Lodge and the Hay-barn Study, Roosevelt, Travels at Home and Abroad, Making a Living, Edison and Ford, The World War, and Last Years.
