About this book

Identifies the imaginative use of wild animals in early western society. In what is now western Canada, humans have long used wildlife in order to survive their surroundings, better understand their natural world, and form aspects of their identity. The shared use of wild animals has helped to determine social relations between Native peoples and newcomers and in addition to examing grassroots conservation activities, Colpitts identifies iconographic traditions and subsistence strategies that endured well into the interwar years in the twentieth century.
