Horns and Hair of the High Country is a fictionalized presentation of the author's extensive understanding of elk, grizzly bear, mountain goat, sheep, and the caribou, written from the animal's point of view. He inserts informative information about nature into each story, and at the end, he shares with the reader some real-life experiences from the human point of view. For Lloyd Antypowich, going into the mountains for three weeks at a time was far more than a hunting trip. It was like going back to school where he could learn the language of the animals of the wild and the untamed country, where he could get in tune with Mother Nature. That is why he preferred to use horses. The quietness in which he traveled allowed him to hear and see animals that he would otherwise have missed. When one enters into the domain of the wild, the first thing one must learn is to read the signs; it is like reading a book. It tells you what the animals have been doing. Learning that gives one a better understanding of the animals. No, they don't greet you in the morning and ask you if you had your breakfast yet, but they give you a sign, and if you can understand it, you will know what they are telling you. Remember they too have a brain; and everything that they see, smell, or hear puts that body in motion. If you wear aftershave and scented soap, they will smell you long before you will have seen them. In time, one can gain their trust and learn a whole lot more about them, and that to me is a whole lot more rewarding than overpowering them with a high-powered scope.Horns and Hair of the High Country is a fictionalized presentation of the authora#39;s extensive understanding of elk, grizzly bear, mountain goat, sheep, and the caribou, written from the animala#39;s point of view.
