Autobiographical work by British born Belaney as his alter ego, Native American conservationist Grey Owl. Belaney’s imposture went undetected for many years, and was only acknowledged following his death in 1938. Which is not to detract from the impact he had on conservation work in Canada and beyond. Scarce.
