The stories in Far Pastures take readers to R.M. Pattersons homestead in the Peace River country of northern Alberta. To all-night dances that ended as the northern lights faded in the dawn. To escapades on the Fort Nelson, Liard and South Nahanni rivers. And to a ranch in southern Alberta where he raised cattle during the lean years of the 1930s and entertained dudes on mountaintops. In later years, Patterson helped build a wartime road through the Canadian Northwest to Alaska. And then theres the story of the bear that liked to canoe!

Product Description:

In Far Pastures, Raymond Patterson offers the rich spirit and vitality of the frontier; he lived, sweated and risked his life in the wildernesss. Homesteading in the Peace River country, ranching in the foothills, camping among the mountains, trapping up the Nahanni, Patterson's life in Canada was a far cry from his years in the mellow beauty of Oxford, and the formality of the Bank of England. This dashing adventurer became an expert outdoorsman and an outstanding writer.

About the Author:

R.M. Patterson was arguably the greatest storyteller in the rural west. He was born in England and served in the First World War, then crossed the Atlantic in 1924. He farmed, prospected, and hunted in the northern Rocky Mountains. His stories of adventure in the mountain wilderness and on the prairies won legions of fans worldwide. Urban critics also praised his skill with words, and his ability to bring the western outback to life on the page. Patterson's works stand today as classics of the genre of frontier literature. He died in 1984.
