Content descriptions

General Note: "A memoir"--cover.
Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references (pages 203-206).
Summary, etc.: The Summer of the Horse is a work of non-fiction that explores both the physical landscape of the Muskwa-Kechika Management Area (M-KMA), located in northern British Columbia's Northern Rockies, and the metaphysical landscape of the human mind. Part memoir, part meditation on objects, the encompassing subject is wilderness, both as a physical space and as a human construct, and the limitations that come with both. The work also explores ideas around mind and body--how the mind's reflective, language-appropriating powers address wilderness and the ways in which the body addresses the material wilderness.
