Writing prehistoric fiction

April 8

Bob Hayes was the Yukon wolf biologist for many years, and his wilderness experiences formed the core of the Zhòh Trilogy fiction. The setting is the north Yukon, a wild, ancient land that hasn’t changed in thousands of years. To imagine the animal characters, he drew on his long experience researching Yukon wildlife. Working with The Heritage Committee of the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation, he used their language, culture and spiritual beliefs to imagine the human characters and their prehistoric saga of struggle and survival. He has written four books.

This is part of the Maskwacis Cultural College Microlearning Series and is open to the public.
