William and Maymie Kimes Annotation

Of this little squirrel Muir writes: ""Nature has made him master-forester and committed almost the whole of her coniferous crops to his paws .... He is, without exception, the wildest animal I ever saw,-a fiery, sputtering little bolt of life .... No one who makes the acquaintance of our forester will fail to admire him; but he is far too self-reliant and warlike ever to be taken for a darling.""
