Cheney Library, 610 First St, Cheney, WA
Fifty Years of Fur, Feathers, and Fins will come alive when you hear 90 year old Cheney author E. Reade Brown retell the exciting stories and amazing adventures of his life as a biologist in the Northwest and beyond. His book and this presentation are about the experiences of a young biologist who spent 33 years working for the State of Washington’s Department of Game, starting in 1948. It is known today as the Department of Fish and Wildlife. These experiences include those of the author scrambling up tall stumps to avoid charging angry cow elk protecting their calves, wrestling mountain goats snared while coming to a salt lick, backpacking through the wilderness of Alaska’s Kenai Peninsula in 1947, and patting a killer whale on the nose while monitoring Griffen and Goldsberry’s whale capture operations in Puget Sound.
Fifty Years of Fur, Feathers, & Fins is available for purchase directly from the author at this presentation, on Amazon.com, at Auntie's Bookstore in downtown Spokane, and can be reserved at any Spokane County Library.
