After an active life as a cowboy, game warden, and rancher in Canada's vast heartland, Symons retired to the small village of Silton, Saskatchewan, to draw and write about the land he loved so dearly. Here he tells of the simple joys of his new home, recording month by month the changes in the landscape before his study window and in the living things in the fields around him. With rustic stateliness he observes the land being plowed, then sowed, then undergoing all the stages through harvest and winter that bring it back to plowing again, while all around nature's wild creatures go through their own wondrous cycles of fertility. But this book is much more than aa simple record of natural events, for Symons was a man of strong opinions and he sprinkled them freely throughout.
