Brian Brett's farm on Salt Spring Island is affectionately known as Trauma Farm.

This funny and thought-provoking memoir traces one day on Trauma Farm. In it, Brett explores the natural history of the small mixed farm, meditates on the perfection of the egg, offers critiques of factory farms and the slaughtering industry, muses on the uses and misuses of gates, and ponders the constant presence of death a

Tuco : the parrot, the others, and a scattershot world by Brian Brett( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Both a biography of an irreverent African Grey parrot--given to asking "Whaddya know?" and announcing "Party time!"--And an exploration of the history of birds/ dinosaurs, the relationships between humans and birds, our notions of language and intelligence, and our tendency to "other" anything that is different from us, Tuco also describes Brett's own painful experience of being othered as an androgyne. Provocative, profound, hilarious, and moving, Tuco is most of all the extraordinary story of Brett's decades-long relationship with this singular bird, what Brett calls "a story we made together."--

Trauma farm : a rebel history of rural life by Brian Brett( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both a celebration and excoriation of farm life, Brett examines his family homestead on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, and the state of contemporary farming. Raising fruits and vegetables, a small group of cows, chickens and pigs, Brett airs some strong criticisms of modern agriculture, such as cattle slaughterhouses, tempered by light-hearted passages and grim humour: "How do you make a small fortune at farming? Start with a large fortune."
