Historical records etched in stone tell of man's early interests in animals. Some of the oldest cave markings in the Old World reveal not only man's intense love of nature but also the progress of his intellectual development. The cave dwellers were adept sign makers. So were the early Chinese, Babylonians and Egyptians. American Indians were well versed in sign markings and animals tracks. Early pioneers followed the river courses of the New World to set the stage for the greatest empire on earth, all through an intimate knowledge of animals, their haunts, signs of abundance or scarcity.
