Inquest into the True Nature of a Predator
In 2005, Kenton Carnegie was killed in a wolf attack near his work camp in northern Saskatchewan.

The contributors offer practical meditations on resistant and sustainable teaching and seek to undermine forms of oppression frequently practised in higher education, aiming instead for critical thinking, creativity, and inclusivity.
Rhonda Parrish, Rona Anderson (Co-author)
Are there really spirits lurking around Fort Edmonton and the provincial legislature? Do ghosts haunt the halls of the University of Alberta? This collection of more than 40 stories reveals the truth in the tales people tell and highlights Edmonton’s dark shadows and colourful past.
These lyrical and melancholic poems tell the stories of “endlings,” the last individuals of a species, sometimes in their voices, sometimes in the words of official reports, and sometimes from the perspective of those who loved them and those who killed them, exposing the brutality of Nature and the devastation of human ignorance, carelessness, and intent.
