Between 1996 and his death in 2003, naturalist R.D. Lawrence wrote 30 books, published in 32 countries and in 16 languages. Canada’s Best Kept Secret: The Natural World of R.D. Lawrence combines interviews and archival footage to tell the story of the prolific Canadian author and ecologist who provided a voice for those without one.

Perhaps best known for his work with wolves, R.D. Lawrence and his wife Sharon cared for and rescued over 2,000 animals on their acreage in the northern highlands of Ontario. His impact on the green movement of the 20th century was immeasurable; his work heavily influenced the awareness of conservation and the importance of respecting wildlife in its natural environment.
