Abstract:

"Animals fascinate us. Whether we view them as friends, workmates, symbols, totems, or food, animals matter to us, and we want to tell their stories. In this collection, thirty-seven writers from across Canada tell thought-provoking stories of extraordinary encounters with a variety of animals--from rats and salamanders to wolves and bears. From tributes to a favourite cat or dog to tales of a chance encounter with a moose or a cougar, these stories are sure to entertain and enlighten. The writers are people who spend time in the company of animals, paying close attention to them and their natures, and the lessons they can teach us. Features stories from well-known Canadian authors including Farley Mowat, Richard Wagamese, David Weale, Linda Johns, Anny Scoones, and David Adams Richards, as well as many new and promising voices. Editor Pam Chamberlain grew up on a mixed farm in the agricultural community of Tulliby Lake in east-central Alberta. She has been teaching English literature, composition, and creative writing for twenty years, and is the editor of Country Roads: Memoirs from Rural Canada. She lives in Calgary"--Provided by publisher.
