The Gumboot Geese

$16.95


The Canada goose, a beloved cultural symbol for Canadians, is the inspiration for this story for children. It starts near the pulp mill at Powell River, BC, the unlikely spot where two mother Canada geese decide to lay their eggs. Some of the goslings are hatched in an incubator, then end up at a stump ranch where they decide that Crocus the Chinese weed-eating gander is their mother. One fine day a wild cousin from the north comes to visit and there is much food for thought about wildness and tameness, and the differences.
