Spanning decades of O'Hagan's experience, as mountain guide, gentleman adventurer and story-teller, this collection of tales include: A Mountain Journey, The Man Who Walked Naked Across Montana, Grey Owl, The Warning, and The Little Bear That Climbs Trees. The title story, Trees Are Lonely Company was awarded the President's Medal of the University of Western Ontario in 1959 for best short story of the year. As in his classic novel Tay John, O'Hagan's characters in these stories are formed by and emerge from the life-force of the landscapes they inhabit - emblematic of a continent emerging into history. This collection serves to commemorate the life's work of one of Canada's most passionately imaginative writers."@en ;
