Synopsis: This extraordinary book is a celebration –of the quirky plenitude of nature, and of the deep rhythms of family life. Don McKay writes with great technical panache. But his attention to what he loves is so constant and so generous that we are left, not with mere virtuosity, but with a world renewed.
