Item description for Mountain Sheep and Man in the Northern Wilds by Valerius Geist...

Originally published in 1975.

In Mountain Sheep and Man in the Northern Wilds Valerius Geist, a renowned scientist, sensitive observer, and natural storyteller here recounts his experiences among, and reflections upon, the magnificent bighorned sheep of the Canadian wilderness, where he lived and worked year 'round. The book presents popular science in the best sense -- beautifully written, unmistakably accurate, innovative and thought provoking.

In the book Dr. Geist focuses on cold climates to study animal behavior and its implications for man. He makes valuable contributions to our knowledge about aggression and dominance and offers new insights into the impact of ecological factors upon the anatomy, physiology and behavior of man as well as beast. He looks critically at the role of early and modern man as hunter and tells delightful stories about his own adventures in working with big-game animals. His splendid photographs capture his enthusiasm for the land and the sheep. Finally, he ponders the lessons that urban man can learn from zoological theory so that he may better live within his ecological means.
