All her adult life she defended her father as did her mother, Anahareo, from those who underscored his contribution to the cause of conservation.

She knew how timely his central message was: You belong to Nature, not it to you.In his book her husband Bob Richardson sensitively recounts the years of their relationship: their first meeting, marriage, and life together. In many ways it reads like a modern version of Pilgrims of the Wild, Grey Owls own account of his life with Anahareo, the story of a growing relationship.Bob describes Dawns tremendous personal strength in the face of poor health.

At the age of nine she became seriously diabetic. For the first time it tells of Dawns discovery in 1976 of Leonard Scott-Brown, her fathers half-brother, then living in Vancouver, who became a second father to her. It recounts interesting stories of Dawns and Bobs search of the meaning of Grey Owl and Anahareo, through trips to places where they lived in northern Canada in the late 1920s and early 1930s.Dawn helped me enormously over a fifteen year period with the preparation of my biography of her father, From the Land of Shadows (1990).

Unfortunately she did not live to see it in print, as she died six years before it appeared. I loved reading Bobs account as it brought her back to life for me, this warm, intelligent, fun-loving woman, who recognized the enormous contribution of both her father and mother to conservation, and wanted the world to know it as well.
