Grey Owl and Me: Stories From the Trail and Beyond (Paperback)
by Hap Wilson Illustrated by Hap Wilson and Ingrid Zschogner
Publisher: Dundurn

Hap Wilson is back for another journey, this time on the lighter side of the adventure trail, where the bizarre melds with the sublime. Nurtured by the writings of Canadian environmentalist and wannabe-Native, Grey Owl, Wilson adopted a lifestyle similar to the 1930s conservationist but with his own twists and turns along a meandering path full of humorous misadventures. Wilson, too, learned many of his nature skills as a youth, paddling in Temagami, working as a wilderness canoe ranger and guide, and following in the footsteps of one of Canada's most revered outdoor icons.

The author recounts early days winter camping, motorcycling the Labrador coast, and teaching actor Pierce Brosnan how to throw knives and paddle a canoe for the Richard Attenborough film about Grey Owl. He also takes us to a few of his favourite places and shares intimate secrets of wilderness living. Here, Grey Owl has returned as an ever-present critic -- a buckskin-clad spectre in a modern world of Gore-Tex, Kevlar canoes, and gear freaks.

But the dead man left a clue: a single word, spelled out in his four-year-old's letter magnets, is fixed to the fridge door.Detective Ari Greene arrives minutes before the international press, who are obsessed by Wyler's torrid affair with a young Hollywood starlet. The city's going through a crime wave and the heat is on Greene. Hours after the funeral, Wyler's ex-wife Tamar is charged with the murder.For veteran defence lawyer Ted DiPaulo, widowed and raising two teenagers, his biggest obstacle is his own client. Tamar Wyler is a strange, enigmatic beauty who comes from an old mining town in Northern Ontario. And DiPaulo's up against a determined prosecutor: Jennifer Raglan has recently stepped down as head crown and she's back with her husband - after an affair with Detective Greene...What should be a straight-forward guilty plea turns into a complex murder trial, and leaves a trail of unanswered questions in its aftermath.
