Come if you dare for a quiet walk in Western Canada's lively woods. Twenty-seven real life short-stories will bring you into the beautiful rural and remote wilds of British Columbia, Yukon and Alberta. As you climb rugged mountainsides and explore forested valleys.

Close and energizing bears, cougars, moose, wolverines, fox, beavers, owls and many other wild animals large and little. Such experiences have taught him much-valued lesions, a positive never-ending appreciation and definite respect for Nature's infinite living expressions.

When one is out alone and with benign intent in the wilds of Nature, uncommon or intimate experiences sometimes come: effecting unexpected deep psychological, positive emotional and even inner spiritual change. Thus Nature can be a great teacher... speaking to humanity in multifarious nonconceptual ways. Nature is not necessarily an enemy to be feared, defeated or destroyed but is instead a realm for living, learning, appreciating and caring.

Comprehensive notes give tips on how you can hike or camp safely and cleanly. Jargon and terminology are defined and a variety of relevant information included. Elaborations are made on various subjects mentioned in the book: animal behaviour, ecology, politics, economics, society, philosophy, human mind and the power of Nature. The author's views are derived from a combination of direct experience, observation and reason.
