"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
From his boyhood days through his adulthood as a trapper, guide, naturalist, and outdoorsman, Andy Russell lived a lifestyle that would be near-impossible today. Growing up in the Northern Rockies in a "land of boots and saddles, guns and fishing rods, and the smell of pines and grass," he observed the ways of animals wild and tame, braved rugged mountaintops and freezing rivers. He forged friendships with the local Indians and with the "remittance men," second sons of British aristocracy who left their stamp on the new country with ready cash and a zest for high living. Here are thrilling and humorous tales of breaking horses, hunting bears, and living proud and free, told in a naturally eloquent voice. (51/2 X 81/4, 320 pages, b&w photos)
ANDY RUSSELL was born in 1915 in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. He has been a hunter, broncobuster, fisherman, professional guide and outfitter, and rancher. He is a noted naturalist and wildlife photographer, and his work has appeared in Natural History as well as several outdoor magazines. His book Grizzly Country is considered a modern classic on the big bears.
