"Canada geese are the aristocrats of North American water fowl. Wary and keen of eye, these handsome birds fly with ... grace and agility -- clever and noble adversaries for the hunters whose prize they are. In this ... novel ... outdoorsman and wildlife expert Mel Ellis recounts the adventures and journeys of Duke, a wild Canada goose, during a two-year period of his life. Based on Mr. Ellis' ... observations of a real gander's experiences, the story is an exciting saga of Duke's incredible will to live as he faces and overcomes the dangers both man and nature place in his path. Told from Duke's point of view, 'Wild Goose, Brother Goose' describes his loyalty to his mate, who, pinioned so she cannot fly, is unable to join him in flight; his care of their fledglings after her sudden and untimely death: and his encounters with almost certain disasters in the form of hunters' guns, traps, tornadoes, and starvation. At the novel's conclusion, Duke again displays remarkable courage, and that unique brand of intelligence that so many wild creatures seem to possess, when he guides a wounded Canada female many miles over ice and snow to safety ... Not only do we learn a great deal about the Canada goose ... but much about human nature as well ..."
