Reviews

 

“An engaging, informative, often funny, wide-ranging look at moose. ” — The StarPhoenix

“Of Moose and Men is at once informative and entertaining, the whole spectrum of a natural world filtered through a smart, quirky, caring man who knows that world better than any other human. " — Open Letters Monthly

"A charmingly unrestrained narrator presents chapter subtitles like 'More matters moosey,' offering a hodgepodge of information about the behemoth of the family Cervidae. From the historical to the biological, Haigh leaves no aspect of moose-bound lore uncovered. " — Publishers Weekly
