The Life of a River

By Andy Russell

Toronto: McClelland and Stewart. Near Fine in Very Good dust jacket. 1987. First Edition. Hardcover. 0771078781 . HC/DJ - near fine/very good. Book is from the Writers Guild of Alberta library and has a few ex-lib type markings, including a front pocket and spine sticker. Hardcover is clean and tight, with minimal wear and no markings other than as above. Dustjacket has light age tanning, light scuffing and very light edgewear, no tears. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; “For those with eyes to see, a river can be a living link with our past. ” In this unique blend of history and reminiscence, Andy Russell tells the story of the Oldman River, running east from the Rocky Mountains. He recalls his personal encounters with the land and the people; the astonishing role this area has played since the Ice Age as the only ice-free passage on the continent; the ancient peoples who lived and hunted along its shores; the coming of the first white explorers, and then settlers; and finally, the dam that will destroy the river. Part memoir, part history, part passionate defence of nature, this book is an “emotional and fascinating tale” (Saskatoon Star-Phoenix). (465not,0514) .

In this eagerly awaited second installment, Suzuki, now 70, reflects on his entire life, and on his hopes for the future. The book begins with his life-changing encounters with racism while interned in a Canadian concentration camp during World War II and continues through his troubled teenage years and later successes as a scientist and host of PBS’s The Nature of Things. With characteristic candor and passion, he describes his growing consciousness of the natural world and humankind’s precarious place in it; his travels throughout the world and his meetings with international leaders, from Nelson Mandela to the Dalai Lama; and the abiding role of nature and family in his life. David Suzuki The Autobiography is an intimate and inspiring look at one of the most uncompromising people on the planet. [760]; Signed by Author .
