Summary
Winner of The CAA-Birks Family Foundation Award for Biography The 2000 Ottawa-Carlton Book Award The (U.S.) Rutstrum Award for Best Wilderness Book "A portrait of a true original."---- A Life in the Bush In this beautifully crafted memoir of his father, Roy MacGregor paints an intimate portrait of an unusual man and spins a spellbinding tale of a boy's complex relationship with his father. He also evokes, perhaps for the first time in Canadian literature, the bush the way bush people see it, an insider's view of life in the totemic Canadian wilderness
Summary
In his early twenties, Duncan MacGregor had three goals in mind when he decided to live in Algonquin Park- to learn everything the land had to teach him, to challenge what he believed to be the fundamental facts of life, and to live his life openly, without the restraints of modern society. He lived there for the next fifty years of his life, and this book is a collection of his memoirs put together by his son, Roy MacGregor.
