Rate this:
R.D. (Robert David) Symons was a Saskatchewan naturalist, and painter, revered for his memoirs, nature writing, paintings, and illustrations. He was also a rancher and game warden. For the first time in print, Symons' memoir of his formative years, and his early years in Canada, are captured in the same compelling style and flair that brought him to the forefront as an author. In A Country Boy, Symons writes of his remarkable upbringing in Sussex, England, learning to paint at his father's knee, and nurturing a love of nature that would become a lifelong passion. Here is a book that will restore R.D. Symons to his rightful place as a master, portraying life in nature, and nature in life.
