This book is not an easy read, but any means. It was obvious from the first few pages, that Archie Grey Owl was an intellectual as well as an avid outdoorsman. The descriptions that his pen write take you deep into the heart of a lost frontier that many of us can only visit in our dreams and in his words. I have read few books that hold on to me as well as this.

Not his original name of course, but he started out as an English aristocrat before he emigrated to Canada to live among the tangata whenua. He really was a man of the last frontier, and his fascination for beavers is both entertaining and educational.
