The R.D. Lawrence LibraryeBook - 2014
This special 3-book bundle collects three of the works of master nature writer R.D. Lawrence. In The North Runner, he tells the true and moving story of the building of trust between a man and an exceptional dog that was half wolf, half Alaskan Malamute, and the resulting mutual affection and respect between them. In The Place in the Forest, he tells of a patch of Ontario wilderness, soon known as "The Place." Here Lawrence and his wife built a cabin and became immersed in studying the ways of the wild. "The Place" was home to a variety of wildlife, from black bears, wolves, beavers and raccoons through to hawks, snapping turtles and singing mice. Lawrence's desire to learn, fuelled by his keen observation, led to his writing about and photographing life within his small corner of the forest - the result being a warm, witty account of change and survival in the natural world. The sequel, Where the Water Lilies Grow, continues the story of animals who inhabit the lakeside near his backwoods home. From the smallest water creature to wolves, deer and many, many birds, all are known to him with sensitivity, enthusiasm and empathy. Includes: The North Runner, The Place in the Forest, and Where the Water Lilies Grow.
