This book is the record of a Canadian naturalist and artist. Henry Hackson, elder brother of A.Y. Jackson. It is also his record of changes, both social and environmental, that took place in Montreal and the Quebec countryside during the Depression, the Second World War, and the period immediately following. It is finally a testament to the rich inner resources of a man who, with very little money and no formal education, celebrated the abundance and variety of the natural world around him.
