Nature has been called ‘the effect whose cause is God.’ Ulysses became an integral part of this effect, and, in spite of the fact that he considered himself the world’s top bumbler—often with plenty of reasons, vehemently vouched for by those left behind in the debris—he proved himself indispensable to the Woodland World into which he characteristically stumbled. In the world of man, Ulysses stumbled and bumbled constantly, but in the world of the forest, where he surprisingly became winter caretaker and lone occupant of an isolated hunters’ lodge, he attained dignity, wisdom and assurance as he employed every faculty of his senses and opened his heart to its mysteries and its beauty—and its animal residents. For Ulysses was not alone for long. During that winter in this beloved woods he acquired his amazing wild zoo. This included a pugilistic crippled antelope buck, an injured bird, a lost beagle, a rabbit saved from a weasel and a baleful bobcat! [Suggest a different description.]
