"'Winter on Diamond' is the story of ywo young men who winter deep in the Temagami Wilderness, neighbouring with whiskey-jacks and the tall red pines. It is the remembrance of a fifty-year-old biologist who discovered the power in life by lifting his feet onesnowshoe-step at a time across a season of cold. [...] In the guise of a p air of intertwined travelogues, Bondrup-Nielsen explores the human relationship to the environment. His deep understanding of why species act the way they do, and how seasons structure the wilderness, contrasts with his struggle to understand man-in-nature. The result os a fascinating and enjoyable read." - from the front flap. Bondrup-Nielsen, original from Denmark, is now a professor at Acadia University. Very good. 15.00
