REGARDING E-BOOKS. I have no interest in releasing any books as EBooks
until such time as author's are treated fairly on electronic rights.
Sid Marty's The Black Grizzly of Whiskey Creek is an evocative and gripping story that speaks to our complex and increasingly combative relationship with the wilderness and its inhabitants.
"Marty's latest, The Black Grizzly of Whiskey Creek, is a work of poetic genius. The book combines the best of hard investigative reporting with the narrative power of the finest literary journalism. It moves along at the clip of a detective story. It's also a daring work of the imagination much of the action unfolds from the perspective of a bear... It's as good as nature writing gets."
-Terry Glavin, author of Waiting for the Macaws and Other Stories from the Age of Extinction
Praise for Switchbacks
"Some chapters will have your adrenalin coursing and your heart pounding; one or two others may make you weep. All of them will thrill you with the concrete vitality of landscape and language." - Globe and Mail
Praise for Men for the Mountains
"This is a tour-de-force . .. with something vital to tell the myopic city dweller about what is happening to him in the Age of the Machine." - Farley Mowat
