Description

This collection of essays neatly captures the emotion, pragmatism, and whimsey of one of Canada's foremost conservationists. The essays are a subtle blend of the insightful romanticism of Barry Lopez and the natural philosophy of Stan Rowe. Kevin's poignant storytelling and descriptions of real conservation issues once and for all dispel the myth that science and emotion are incompatible. (Paul C. Paquet PHD )
