Don Gayton is one of Canada’s most valued and accomplished nature writers. 
He currently lives in Summerland, B.C., as a self-employed consultant in 
grassland and dry forest ecology, grazing management, fire ecology, 
ecological restoration, farming/ranching liaison, vegetation 
monitoring/mapping, invasive plants, and species at risk. In the past he 
worked for the B.C. Ministry of Forests and Range and the Saskatchewan 
Department of Agriculture.  After growing up in California and Washington 
State, he spent two years as a Peace Corps volunteer in Columbia and later 
moved to Canada as a draft dodger. He also lived and worked in New Mexico, 
Mexico, Yugoslavia, and Germany. He was editor of the Journal of Ecosystems 
and Management. His first book, The Wheatgrass Mechanism: Science and 
Imagination in the Western Canadian Landscape (1990), was followed by 
Landscapes of the Interior: Re-explorations of Nature and the Human Spirit 
(1996),  Kokanee: The Redfish and the Kootenay Bio-region (2002), 
Interwoven With the Wild: An Ecologist Loose in His Garden (2008), and, an 
innovative crossbreeding of non-fiction and fiction, Man Facing West (2010). 
He has been honored with the US National Outdoor Book Award, the 
Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild Non-fiction Award, and the Canadian Science 
Writer’s Award. “In  the last century,” Gayton has written, “the physicists 
interpreted science for the public; in this next beleaguered century, we 
ecologists will get our turn.”
