Richard (1862 – 1928) and Cherry Kearton (1871 – 1940): Naturalists
The brothers were brought up in Thwaite in Swaledale. Both worked for a time in the same London publishing house, but their interest in natural history was too strong and they left to become full-time naturalists. Richard popularised his passion for ornithology by writing and giving public lectures on the subject. Cherry became a wildlife photographer, using his photographs to illustrate his brother’s books. Their first collaborative work, British Birds’ Nests, was published in 1895. They tried to record birdsong and were pioneers of bird photography. Cherry later became the first person to make an aerial photographic record of London, taking his views from an airship. He also photographed and described the wildlife of Africa on the Serengeti and in the Congo, both in still photographs and in early films such as Wild Life across Africa, In the Land of the Lion and My Dog Simba.

Puppy Dogs Tales

Related info on Puppy Dogs Tales:
 In the 1920s few homes didn't have a print of one of Cecil Aldin's rascally dogs on the  wall - and this year marks the centenary of the original publication his Dog Day. To mark the occasion, former national newspaper editor Roy Heron, his biographer, has compiled a new edition of Puppy Dogs' Tales which depicts four stories that Cecil originally drew on his children's bedroom wall in Edwardian times. The frieze was recreated as wallpaper and examples of it can still be seen in many of the great houses preserved by the National Trust.Cecil's dogs were full of mischief and always getting into trouble and it was perhaps not  surprising that he became the first person to organise a mongrel dog show. His other credits include drawing the original pictures for Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book and  masses of scenes of hunting and pubs that are still used on all manner of souvenirs  and ornaments.

Campaigning With Crook ~ 1880/1890 ~ Harper ~ 295 pages 
Charles King was adjutant of General Merritt's Fifth Cavalry during the Big Horn and Yellowstone Expedition of 1876.  His account of the successful calvalry campaign against the Indians of the Custer massacre are presented from the soldier's point of view.   The brutal military campaign of General George Crook, which covered 800 miles in ten weeks was hard on Indians and soldiers alike.   The Expedition was successful in scattering the united and victorious Indians of the Custer massacre. The story of the campaign is vividly told. "King’s book begins with the departure of the Fifth United States Cavalry from its headquarters at Fort Hays, Kansas, in June of 1876. It is virtually the only contemporary history of the campaign to trace the movement of that regiment to Fort Laramie, to the famous skirmish on War Bonnet Creek, and then through the long march to the headquarters of Crook’s Big Horn and Yellowstone Expedition at Goose Creek, Montana."--Wisconsin Magazine

Campaigning With King: Charles King, Chronicler of the Old Army; by Don Russell; University of Nebraska Press. Military Biography. Includes Bibliography and Index. Octavo, 187pp. Copyright 1991. 

Lieutenant Charles King, Fifth Cavalry, 1876.Captain Charles King (1844-1933) served seventy years in America’s military forces and was decorated for fighting in five wars, a living rebuttal to the notion that old soldiers fade away loquaciously in their downtown clubs. But he did spin yarns. In fact, he became one of the best known chroniclers of the frontier army and the Indian wars of the 1870s, and an immensely popular writer of fiction. From his pen flowed dozens of novels and histories that made him the American Kipling. Long overdue, Campaigning with King is the first study of that remarkable man’s military and literary careers, written after his death by Don Russell, a respected authority on frontier history. Russell had talked with and corresponded with King since the late 1920s to produce an authentic and colorful book. "If you know King’s life," Russell writes, "you can trace nearly every episode in his stories to some personal experience, and that includes some that seem wildly extravagant. But his was an age of melodrama in life as well as on the printed page -- Custer and Buffalo Bill are controversial figures today just because we cannot believe anyone like them ever existed. King was in the campaign that resulted in Custer’s Last Stand, he saw Buffalo Bill fight Yellow Hand, he knew Winfield Scott, Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses S. Grant, Philip H. Sheridan, Nelson A. Miles, and Arthur MacArthur and his son Douglas.... His life was a greater romance than any he created, and he actually lived all the romance he created." Don Russell, who died in 1986, was a co-founder of the Chicago Corral of Westerners and of its parent organization, Westerners International, and the lifelong editor of the Westerners Brand Book. His many publications include The Lives and Legends of Buffalo Bill (1960), and Custer~ Last, or, The Battle of the Little Big Horn in Picturesque Perspective (1968). Before Russell’s death, Paul L. Hedren received his endorsement to edit the manuscript. A Charles King enthusiast of a more recent era Hedren profiles the Russell-King partnership in his introduction. Paul L. Hedren is superintendent of the Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site and the author of First Scalp for Custer: The Skirmish at Warbonnet Creek, Nebraska, July 17, 1876 and Fort Laramie in 1876. Chronicle of a Frontier Post at War (1988).

Read about Jason, who brought back the golden fleece with the help of the Greek heroes known as Argonauts; Theseus, who fought the minotaur in the labyrinth and found his way out again with the help of a length of string; and Perseus, who decapitated the Gorgon Medusa. Why did Kingsley call his book "Heroes"?
Kingsley answers, "Now, why have I called this book 'The Heroes'? Because that was the name which the Hellens gave to men who were brave and skilful, and dare do more than other men. At first, I think, that was all it meant: but after a time it came to mean something more; it came to mean men who helped their country; men in those old times, when the country was half-wild, who killed fierce beasts and evil men, and drained swamps, and founded towns, and therefore after they were dead, were honoured, because they had left their country better than they found it. And we call such a man a hero in English to this day, and call it a 'heroic' thing to suffer pain and grief, that we may do good to our fellow-men."

Charles Kingsley  Church of England parson, novelist, Christian Socialist, Protestant controversialist, "muscular Christian," poet, and amateur naturalist.   Born on July 12, 1819, to Charles Kingsley, Sr., and Mary Lucas Kingsley, he counted among the early formative influences on his life his witnessing of the Bristol Riots in 1831.  In 1832 he studied with Derwent Coleridge and in 1837 at King's College, London; in 1838 he matriculated at Magdalene College, Cambridge.   He met Frances (Fanny) Grenfell, with whom he fell almost immediately in love in July 6,1839.  In February 1842, Kingsley left Cambridge to read for Holy Orders; in July of that year he became curate of Eversley Church in Hampshire, which he served for the rest of his life. In January 1844, he and Fanny were married; in May he became rector of Eversley Church, and during the summer began corresponding with Frederick Denison Maurice, whose influence permeated every aspect of Kingsley's professional life and whom he addressed as "my Master."

Kingsley moved onto the public stage in 1848 in response to the working class agitation that climaxed in the Chartist collapse of that year.  As a result of his interest in the condition of the working classes, he joined with John Malcolm Ludlow, Frederick Denison Maurice, and others in forming the Christian Socialist movement.  Although he published "Workmen of England" anonymously, he adopted the pseudonym "Parson Lot" for an article, "The National Gallery," which he placed in a new journal Politics for the People. He also used this pseudonym for a series called "Letters to the Chartists."

Despite his interest in the problems of urban workers, Kingsley turned for his first novel to the plight of agricultural labourers.  During 1848 he addressed their plight when his novel Yeast appeared serially in Fraser's Magazine. Two other works of note also appeared in this year: The Saint's Tragedy, Kingsley's only major effort at writing a tragedy, and "Why Should We Fear the Romish Priests?"  Both of these works voice his early anti-Catholicism, which became a major theme of much of his writing and in the 1860s brought on his disastrous clash with John Henry Newman.

Kingsley's Christian Socialist sympathies voiced through the pseudonym "Parson Lot" continued to find expression in print at least through 1851.  However, in 1852 The Christian Socialist failed, and Kingsley's interests began to change.  In that year, for example, he pilloried the American New England Transcendentalists in Phaeton; or Loose Thoughts for Loose Thinkers, and turned to historical fiction with the serial publication of Hypatia; or New Foes with an Old Face in Fraser's Magazine. Phaeton satirised Ralph Waldo Emerson as "Professor Windrush," whose teaching he characterised as "Anythingarianism."

In 1856, Kingsley turned his interest in heroes and heroism to preparing a volume for children. The Heroes; or, Greek Fairy Tales for My Children is a retelling of ancient tales and indicates his growing interest in writing for children, an interest to which he would return in 1862 with The Water-Babies.

The 1860s brought both deserved recognition and the climax of his dispute with John Henry Newman that had been brewing for years.  Largely on the strength of his historical fiction Kingsley was appointed Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge in 1860; in 1861 he was appointed tutor to the Prince of Wales. The Water-Babies: A Fairy Tale for a Land-Baby, arguably his most enduring work, appeared serially in Macmillan's Magazine in 1862 and was published in volume format in 1863.

The Water-Babies touches upon most of Kingsley's favourite themes: the working conditions of the poor, in this case those of chimney sweeps; education; sanitation and public health; pollution of rivers and streams; and evolutionary theory.  In the central character's spiritual regeneration, Kingsley presents a vision of nature as the tool of divine reality, which Thomas Carlyle and F. D. Maurice had taught him underlies the imperfect human world.  Viewing nature as governed by a redemptive spirit allowed Kingsley to remain untroubled by Darwinism.

Although Kingsley contemplated writing other novels, he never did.  Instead, he edited Fraser's Magazine briefly in 1867.  In 1869 he resigned his Cambridge professorship, an academic position in which he had never felt comfortable. In 1868 and 1869 he published a series of articles for children; these were collected and issued in 1870 as Madam How and Lady Why: First Lessons in Earth Lore for Children. A tour of the West Indies followed in 1870, producing notes which became At Last: A Christmas in the West Indies in 1871.  In 1872 he published Town Geology and became President of the Midland Institute in Birmingham.  In the next year he collected a group of prose essays, publishing them as Prose Idylls, New and Old.   In 1874 he published Health and Education and made an exhausting six-month tour of the United States.  When he returned to England he was worn out. On January 23, 1875, he died.
