The Academy for the Love of Learning, home of the Seton Legacy Project will present a special campfire story-telling event under the full moon. The evening will include a presentation of the “Krag” story by Academy curator David L. Witt followed by a slide show on the bighorn sheep rams of the Pecos Wilderness. This free event (with a suggested donation) will take place at Seton Castle where Ernest Thompson Seton himself told stories many times.
“Krag” is a moral tale of obsession. Bighorn sheep hunter Scotty MacDougall pursues a magnificent ram for over a decade, but at a terrible cost. Part natural history and part allegory, Seton shows the consequences of humankind’s destruction of nature in a story which marks the literary beginning of the environmentalist movement.
Bring a jacket in case of chilly weather. Seton Castle is an outdoor venue accessible only by steps and a rock pathway.
