"...The Indians inhabiting the Indian Country had suddenly gone on the war-path without our knowing anything about it till it was almost too late, and we were compelled to 'git out,' with a band of Utes hovering round us for several days....The country we were now in was claimed by the peaceful Soshones, whose fine old chief, the celebrated 'Washakie'—the white man's friend he loved to call himself—was always exerting his influence to keep his more turbulent young bucks from joining any of the warlike demonstrations of other tribes...."<br /><br />William Adolph Baillie Grohman (1851–1921) was an Anglo-Austrian author of works on the Tyrol and the history of hunting, a big game sportsman, and a pioneer of Kootenay--- the southeastern portion of British Columbia, taking its name from the Kootenay River. In 1900, he published "Fifteen years' sport and life in the hunting grounds of western America and British Columbia."<br /><br />This book is the record of sport enjoyed by the author in visits, extending over fifteen years, to the Pacific slope of North America. “Sport such as I enjoyed in the seventies and early eighties is no longer to be obtained—nothing approaching it.” Mr. Baillie-Grohman is a connoisseur of antlers, and his book is a mine of facts about the wapiti, the moose, the antelope goat, and other splendid game. Some of the author's photographs, such as “Civilisation's Progress : Collecting the Last Relics of the Bison for Fertiliser Manufactories,” and an astonishing photograph of a “Salmon Run in a British Columbia River,” are of great interest. Mrs. Baillie-Grohman adds a chapter on the conditions of domestic life on the Slope, with its dependence on Chinese servants, &c. A description of the logging and lumber industry is included. The practical issues of frontier life are touched up throughout the book, which is a matured personal record that will not disappoint readers of the author's earlier works, Tyrol and the Tyrolese, Camps in the Rockies, &c<br /><br />This volume, as will be naturally anticipated by those who have had the good fortune to read Mr. Baillie-Grohman's previous books, will be found full of interest. The author tells his story—and, unlike some modern writers, he has a story to tell— with a straightforward vigour and keen sense of humour which at once attracts the reader. The book appeals, no doubt, to the sportsman more than to the mountaineer, but so much of the hunting is carried on amongst mountains, and requires climbing ability of such a high order, that mountaineers will find much of high interest in it. <br /><br />In describing the hunt of a mountain goat, he writes: "There was a good deal of fooling about the old billy's proceedings, for from time to time he would squat down and take a rest, much amused, no doubt, by the frantic scrambles of his breathless pursuer above him, clearly outlined against the horizon, and feeling very sure that the shaking aim would be anything but dangerous to him."<br /><br />The wapiti, the moose, caribou, bighorn, antelope, the bears, and the bison all 'bulk' largely in Mr. Baillie-Grohman's pages, five chapters being devoted to them, while the seal shares a chapter with the other fur-bearing animals of the Pacific Coast, and the salmon of the Pacific Coast has a chapter to himself. <br /><br />Contents<br />I. TRAVELLING IN THE WESTERN HUNTING GROUNDS.<br />II. THE SLAUGHTER OF BIG GAME AND THE GAME LAWS OF THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA.<br />III. THE WAPITI AND HIS ANTLERS.<br />IV. THE ANTELOPE-GOAT OF THE PACIFIC SLOPE MOUNTAINS.<br />V. THE MOOSE, CARIBOU, AND SMALL DEER OF THE PACIFIC SLOPE.<br />VI. THE BIGHORN AND THE ANTELOPE.<br />VII. THE BEAR AND THE BISON.<br />VIII.

<DIV>Even before the Edmonton Oilers selected him as the first overall draft pick in 2015, it was clear that Connor McDavid was primed to become hockey's next sensation. His electrifying speed, vision, and overall dominance invited comparisons to the generational talents of Sidney Crosby and Wayne Gretzky, and it's no wonder McDavid was quickly named the youngest captain in NHL history after just his rookie season. Now, the young phenom is ready to bring the glory years back to Oil Country. Providing a rare glimpse into McDavid's life and featuring dozens of full-color photos, <I>Connor McDavid: Hockey's Next Great One</I> is a must-have for Oilers fans and anyone who has marveled at No. 97's unparalleled play.</DIV>

Simply put, this is one the most beautiful book about one of the most magic locations in Canada and on earth to visit. Canada's unique bear "Galapagos" is the place where you can watch Spirit (or Ghost) Bear. These bears are only found in the Great Bear Rainforest in British Columbia’s north and central coast. It is the world’s largest intact temperate rainforest. No one agrees on the exact number, but the best estimate is there are no more than 400 Spirit Bears, most of them living on Gribbell Island and on Princess Royal Island in British Columbia.<br />This book describes in details, how to get there and what to expect to see there, so that you can enjoy having the most memorable and truly magic experience of seeing these unique animal. Created by an experienced photographer, web site designer, nature lover and hiker, this book is his third book along with Canadian Rockies and Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary book.<br />During our stay on this island, we have met Marven Robinson and together with Lee (our professional bear guide) we have been fortunate to see two Spirit Bears, one black female bear with its cub and couple of other black bears catching salmons late in September. To get to see and photograph Spirit Bear was truly magic experience and will stay with us for the rest of our lives.<br />Marven Robinson is known as “Mr. Spirit Bear”. He is from the Gitga’at First Nation based in Hartley Bay at the heart of the remote wild coast of British Columbia known as the Great Bear Rainforest. Marven knows almost all of the bears there individually, and his dedication and determination has effectively facilitated the potential for Spirit Bear watching. He built the viewing platforms on which we were standing overlooking a small stream on this unique island, a prime hot spot for Spirit Bear watching.<br />This is an amazing location and you will enjoy reading this book with incredible photographs and www video link to follow.<br />National Geographic Magazine has featured this location many times and many of the videos been broadcasted on BBC, and on other popular wildlife TV channels. This is one unique magic location to visit and to add on your bucket list.<br />Feel free to check out my other two books, from another incredible locations in Canada, called: Canada Travel Adventure, Part 1 (Grizzlies of Khutzeymateen) and Canadian Rockies in Alberta, Canada.
