Synopsis: A unique story about "the wildest, most dangerous of all Arctic mammals," and a man who had the courage to try and flesh out a dream; about winning the complete trust of animals sometimes thought of as prehistoric survivors of the last ice age; about their quirky personalities, intelligence, and sense of humour. It is a one-of-a-kind book, a fascinating read for animal lovers the world over.
About the Author: As a College student Mary (Kennedy) Burpee was encouraged by her English teacher to pursue writing. But She was too busy.
Twenty five years later when she and her husband Clarence Burpee were raising three children plus cattle, grains, forage seed and Arabian horses on an Alberta farm she was hardly less busy. However when the Editor of what was then Canada's national farm magazine, The family Herald, asked her to write about her life on the farm, she wrote her first article, published in 1960. Since then her articles and travelogues have appeared in various papers and periodicals. Two full-length works of historical fiction remain unpublished, more articles continue to be added to her work-in-progress file.
Now at age 84 she is justifiably pleased with the publication of her first book, the Musk Oxen of Gango
