Del Burk farmed, ranched and worked as a big game guide in some of the richest wild-life areas of Canada. Never rich in bankable assets, his life proved rich in experience and people.
In addition to artistic illustrations and photographs the book contains links directing you to YouTube clips taken from 8mm film from nearly fifty years ago.
