About this book

A number of years ago, R.D. Lawrence acquired a patch of Ontario wilderness, soon known as "The Place." Here Lawrence and his wife built a cabin and became immersed in studying the ways of the wild. "The Place" was home to a variety of wildlife, from black bears, wolves, beavers and raccoons through to hawks, snapping turtles and singing mice. Lawrence's desire to learn, fuelled by his keen observation, led to his writing about and photographing life within his small corner of the forest – the result – The Place in the Forest – being a warm, witty account of change and survival in the natural world.
