John Burroughs (1837-1921) was an internationally known naturalist and writer who became incensed by the glowing reviews of writings like Ernest Thompson Seton's Wild Animals I Have Known, which he believed blurred the line between fact and fiction. Seton, feeling his reputation was at stake, invited Burroughs to his country estate, Wyndygoul, for an in-person conversation. Seton took this photograph.
