Ernest Thompson Seton (1860 1946) was an influential writer, wildlife artist and one of the founders of the Boy Scouts of America.

Born in England, raised in Canada, Seton eventually moved to New Mexico and became part of the arts community with Georgia O'Keefe.

Always interested in nature, the environment and Indian lore, Seton's literary work was among the first in the genre of modern wild-animal fiction, depicting character with a sense of compassion.
