About the Author

Lloyd Byra is a “been there, done that” kind of guy who went from homesteading to various pursuits and eventually returned to the land raising Arabian horses. He tells it like he remembers it, no frilly words, just as he talks.

The book describes his immigrant parents’ struggle in northern British Columbia, the good and bad of growing up there, and his knowledge/love of animals. There are the challenging cattle drives, breathtaking moose hunts, and endearing family encounters. Worried that his stories would be lost and his grandchildren would never know this part of their heritage, Lloyd has put pen to paper in order to enrich the lives of his descendants.

He acknowledges the people who helped shape his life and who played an intricate part in his development as a cowboy and businessperson.
