9780140056280: Pilgrims of the Wild

First published in 1935, Pilgrims of the Wild is Grey Owl's autobiographical account of his transition from successful trapper to preservationist. With his Iroquois wife, Anahereo, Grey Owl set out to protect the environment and the endangered beaver. Powerful in its simplicity, Pilgrims of the Wild tells the story of Grey Owl's life of happy cohabitation with the wild creatures of nature and the healing powers of what he referred to as "the great Northland" of "Over the Hills and Far Away."

A bestseller at the time, Pilgrims of the Wild helped establish Grey Owl's international reputation as a conservationist. His legacy of warnings against the degradations of nature and the dangers of industry live on, despite the posthumous revelation that he wasn't, in fact, the First Nations man he claimed to be.

Book Description Penguin Books Canada, Markham, ON, Canada, 1983. Paperback. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Reprint Edition. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. Foreword by Lovat Dickson. Abridged by Olive Jones. Very good orange color pictorial trade paperback. Light wear, clean interior. (1983), 12mo, [8], 9-224pp. Arora 1890 Saskatchewan Bibliography, Fee & Cawker p.51 Canadian Fiction An Annotated Bibliography, "In this book, Grey Owl, or Archie Belaney, describes the change from the life of a trapper, to that of a conservationist." "Grey Owl (or Wa-sha-quon-asin, from the Ojibwe wenjiganoozhiinh, meaning "great horned owl" or "great grey owl") was the name Archibald Belaney (September 18, 1888 - April 13, 1938) adopted when he took on a First Nations identity as an adult. Born in England as Archibald Stansfeld Belaney, and migrating to Canada in the first decade of the 20th century, he rose to prominence as a notable author, lecturer, and one of the "most effective apostles of the wilderness". In his experiences with the Ojibwe Indians, Archibald Belaney learnt the Aboriginal harvesting techniques, trapping, and Ojibwe culture. The pivotal moment of departure for Grey Owl¿s early conservation work was when he began his relationship with a young Iroquois girl named Gertrude Bernard, who assisted in his transition from trapper to conservationist. In working with the National Parks Branch, Grey Owl gained recognition and fame in his early career as a conservationist, becoming the subject of many films, and being established as the ¿caretaker of park animals¿ at Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba in 1931. Together with his numerous articles, books, films and lectures, his views on conservationism reached audiences beyond the borders of Canada, impacting how humans' saw their adverse relationship with nature. His conservation views largely focused on humans' negative impact on nature through their commodification of nature's resources for profits and a need for humans to develop a respect for nature. Revelation of his British origins after his death adversely affected his reputation for some time. Since the 1970s and, with the centennial of his birth, there has been renewed public appreciation for his conservation efforts. Recognition has included biographies, a historic plaque at his birthplace, and a 1999 biopic about his life by director Richard Attenborough." Wikipedia. Bookseller Inventory # 027929
