A kaleidoscopic view of the northern water fowl. Native people harvest them, scientists track their movements, artists portray them, hunter lure and stalk them, dairy farmers put up with them, and Canadian fiction writer and playwright Burns herself prepares one for supper. She includes many black-and-white photographs of people and birds.
