Born in 1914, Joe Purdon was one of North America's early conservationists. After stumbling as a child upon a cluster of Showy Lady's Slippers in bloom, Joe dedicated his life to protecting these rare orchids. In this picture book Ian Wallace depicts how Joe Purdon became a steward of a fragile piece of land in Eastern Ontario.
