Photo Cover
----------trade paperback, a Near Fine copy, signed by Tournay, 238 pages, colour and b&w photos, ---"Following graduation from the University of Toronto, Audrey Tournay taught Literature and Art in various high schools in Ontario. For s short time she had a teaching position at the Berkley Institute in New York City. ---Tournay is generally a self-effacing, humble and shy person, but she can, when confronted with inhumane cruelty to any vulnerable creature, show steadfast determination and steely courage when faced with daunting danger to herself. One can read about this plucky characteristic in some of the fascinating and gripping stories in On the Edge of the Wild. ---While Tournay has willingly cared for many species of wildlife over the years, she readily admits that her favourite creature is the beaver. Her home is purposely positioned on Sanctuary property which overlooks a large beaver pond where many of the beavers she has cared for over the years have been released. In her fascinating book Beaver Tales, she describes many of the extraordinary experiences she has had while caring for and living with Canada''s national emblem - the beaver. ---On the Edge of the Wild recounts stories of other wildlife creatures who have been cared for and rehabilitated by Sanctuary staff. The accounts are written in typical Tournay style - uniquely entertaining, enlightening and interspersed with her sharp-witted sense of humour. ---Although retired, she continues her keen interest in the Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary - a sanctuary she founded by fortuitous happenstance - many years ago."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
