"About Big Bird in the Bush Earle Birney writes: This is a first collection of my prose narratives and essays. The ten pieces roam about from the B.C. Coast to the Peruvian Andes, and include such characters as a Kootenay phoenix-hunter, some Banff schoolboys sixty years back, a CuraƧaon cabbie, a nogoodnik Utah teacher, assorted duellists, a one-man fire brigade, some of my dumbest students, a group ot London pubsters about to be blitzed, and a Canadian soldier already dead." - from rear.
