Choosing Wildness: My Life Among the Ospreys
In Choosing Wildness, Claude Arbour describes his unusual life on a wilderness lake in northern Quebec amidst a lively community of wild birds and animals. In vibrant, moving prose, he documents his personal journey from high school dropout to noted ornithologist and conservationist, explaining how he goes beyond reintroducing birds into the wild to preserve a network of nesting sites in the lake region. Arbour brings readers deep inside the mind of a man with the courage to forsake city life and the insight to explore the transformative power of nature.
