King of the Mountain
More Stories and Memories from BC's Backcountry
There are some truths that are inescapable, and one such truth is the necessity for harmony and disharmony in our natural world: predator and prey, humans and wildlife, nature and the forces of nature. In Jack Boudreau's ninth book, KING OF THE MOUNTAIN, he takes a deep look at the delicate balance of co-existence. He introduces us to the hunters, landowners and conservationists that have witnessed the changing world of BC's great north. True to Jack's style, these stories are personal,humorous and sometimes tragic for both human and animal.
