Book Description

6 Jan 1997
Lishman has achieved what many thought to be impossible. He has succeeded in modifying the migratory pattern of the Canada Goose. Due to human interference with their habitat, many birds who are by nature migratory species, no longer depart for southern climes at the onset of winter. By raising a flock of Canada Geese from egg to adulthood, Lishman literally imprinted himself on the flock - they believed he was indeed their `Father Goose`. In October 1993 Lishman took off from his Toronto farm in a microlight. Eighteen birds followed in a V-formation all the way to Virginia. The following April the branded flock returned to Lishman`s farm to greet their surrogate father. Father Goose is a fascinating tale of a modern-day renaissance man and an ecological hero.

This was bought as a present. The person it was bought for says she is finding it really interesting. The book was purchased as a follow up to wating the film.
Delivery very prompt.

great story, just a bit of a suprise, being just a tad different from the film.The emotional content comes over differently in either medium.
