O J BAYCROFT

A NEW AND UNIQUE AUTHOR

Hello and welcome to my website. I’m a new author with a unique  style that is entertaining, educational and appeals to young and old alike. I have been writing for years about many subjects in poetry and humorous satires, but this is my first widely published work. Using poetry and photographs, I tell a story of a dog that dreams of running with a pack of wolves. I’m looking forward to sharing my future stories as they develop.  I am working to get the word out that Haida The Hunter is a fun and informative read for everyone with lots of beautiful photography of wildlife and scenery from the mountainous British Columbia interior.

About the Story

Haida The Hunter is a photographic and poetic story of a dog that dreams of running with a pack of wolves before any humans ever set foot in North America. Learn the joys and hardships to live as a wolf, as well as the environment and animals that the wolves compete against and depend on for survival.

My Story

A Bit About Me and Haida

As a kid living way out in the country I would live in my own world of imagination wondering how things looked from differing perspectives, be it other people's or animal's. In school I wrote many short imaginative stories and rhymes, but it all was suppressed when I graduated, moved onto post secondary education and became an indentured member of the automated industrial workforce. In recent years I have taken the time to reunite with that perspective and talent to honor people and animals and convey their stories and points of view.

Spending time in the wilderness is a refreshing inspiration using my best four-footed friend, Haida as my muse.  Living off the land is my way to connect with nature, not for glory or for a trophy, but for healthy living and eating as it was for my ancestors long ago.

   As for Haida, she is an active inquisitive German Shepherd Dog that loves fun of any-kind anytime (except early mornings). I always wonder just what is going on in that furry head of hers, she always seems to have an agenda that is much different than mine.
