Del Burk farmed, ranched and guided big-game hunters in some of the richest wild-life areas of Canada.  The biography covers a recent patch of history, but a patch already gone.  The farm equipment he knew now belong in museums, and the ranching practices of the fifties and sixties have largely simply disappeared.  Where Del's big-game guiding experiences took him over trails meant only for horses, there are now paved roads or the rutted paths of ATVs.  

Del's story as a big-game guide is one of continually changing territory and challenges.  His travels nearly always took him to the mountains.  His first mountains were in the Casiar Mountains of BC.  Other travels took him into the rocky mountains of Western Alberta, as well as the North West Territories and the Yukon.  His main non-mountain experience took him to the Buffalo Plains of the North-West Territories where he guided a hunter to a world record trophy.

The ebook is illustrated by the paintings and sketches of John Stone, a well known painter from James River Bridge, Alberta.  The book also includes numerous photos and even links to YouTube videos taken from fifty year old 8mm film.

Del's stories help you re-live an interesting but not to be repeated past.
