Beasts of the Field. William J Long. Illustrated by Charles Copeland. Boston and London: Ginn & Company, 1902. “There is a curious Indian legend about Meeko the red squirrel — the Mischief-Maker, as the Milicetes call him — which is also an excellent commentary upon his character. Simmo told it to me one day when we had caught Meeko coming out of a woodpecker’s hole with the last of a brood of fledgelings in his mouth, chuckling to himself over his hunting."
