An Alberta Bestiary builds on the traditions of the medieval bestiary to consider the unique animals of the Alberta mountains and foothills. From the perspective of a rancher who has an intimate knowledge of the landscape and animals, the feel and texture of natural life are illuminated in prose that is both stirring and humorous. With the author's sensitivity to the rhythms of the land, the animals and the heavens, the reader is drawn into the natural world where connections to historical knowledge underscore a passionate concern for the environment and humankind's responsibility to the world we share with all creatures.
