A small roadblock pops up at the Bartsch's Ontario hobby farm, just as they're about to set off on a cross-Canada road trip. From the warmth of its incubator, a newly hatched gosling emerges, ready to take on the world. Undeterred by the fuzzy goose's sudden arrival, the couple - husband and wife - brings Ralph along for a Canadian adventure. Written in rhymes, Ralph's Trip to the West is a delightful children's book, based on the gosling's real-life antics while travelling from North Bay, Ontario, to Vancouver, British Columbia. Along the way, precocious (and outspoken) Ralph enjoys history and geography lessons, develops friendships with other animals, sees snow for the first time, and dreams of finding paradise, namely a swimming pool to call his own.
