Dmitri Gheorgheni - Not Banned in China

smiley - hug I'm very excited - I just found another book written by an early pioneer down the road. He's amazing.

'It was Jackson Long, William's oldest son, who in 1850 shot a panther in his den by the light of the animal's glaring eyes.' Twenty miles down the road from here, so help me... smiley - magic

This author, a Presbyterian minister, also wrote an epic poem...wait for it...about the christianisation of Ireland by St Patrick. smiley - rofl

How much of this ends up in the book, who knows? Getting there is half the fun, isn't it?

'The black bear is a big eater, but he never tastes flesh while nuts or berries can be found, and he sleeps all winter.' - Boyd McCullough

I would add, 170 years down the road, 'or pizza, or suet from the bird feeder...' smiley - winkeye

Bluebottle lives on the Isle of Man, right?

Could you take pity on a forgetful old man and give me the answer? Please? I promise to read whatever FWR writes in November.

The only researcher whose home region I can remember is Prof Animal Chaos. (Well, Sho is in Germany, and Pierce in Denmark, etc. But the English ones are harder for me to remember....)

Wild guess..
