Join Gordon Harrison as he takes you through the wonders of the forest, experienced as a boy exploring the hinterlands of Ontario with his cousin. Then as an adult, photographing all the creatures that he studied during that time, in one of the most quiet forested corners of Haliburton County. Peppered liberally with photographs of wolves, bear, deer, and all manner of wild creatures, My Cousin & Me and Other Animals weaves memoir with biology and philosophy. An ode to the beauty of life created through natural selection, author Gordon Harrison expresses his passion and wonder with the natural world and its processes, his concern with the impact we are having on the planet’s future, and the need to “catch the apple when it falls and sweet or sour bite it hard!”
My Cousin & Me and Other Animals by Gordon Harrison is available to reserve at the Haliburton County Public Library.
