Cattle Drives, Moose Hunts, Blizzards, and Such: A Northern Canadian Cowboy (Paperback)
Lloyd's daughters used to ask him, "Dad, what was it like when you were growing up?" Usually, the answer was quite extraordinary. Lloyd Byra grew up in a different era and a very different reality from that of most Canadians. These collected stories are his memories of growing up in a pioneering family, in one of the last homestead areas of the far north: BC's Peace River Country. From his father's dream of a better life for his family, through the chilling realities of northern winters, to the hardships of building a ranch on the Umbach Creek (formally Squaw Creek), these stories offer a glimpse into his life. Share in the dangers of that first moose hunt, the adventures of the cattle drives, and joys and triumphs found along the way.
