Gary L. Saunders (b. 1935, Clarke's Head, Gander Bay, Newfoundland).
"'A few years ago' says the author, 'troubled by the steady rain of bad news about the environment and restless to do something about it, I undertook a series of illustrated magazine pieces. For over five years I wrote of alders, coyotes, shopping malls, the seal hunt, Eaton's catalogue, ice ages, woodstoves, bushplanes, cod liver oil, the sex lite or a capnn — anything that struck my fancy and about which I knew something worth telling. And I worked in some ecological lessons. This book brings together my best published essays from that period.'
Readers who enjoy their bond with nature will take delight in Saunders' stories of his relationship with the world. City dwellers will find pleasure in their armchair wanderings with him, and those who live in the country will be reminded why." - from rear.
