Individual chapters cover all the salmon producing areas of North America from the coast of Maine through to the northernmost reaches of Newfoundland, Labrador and Ungava and there are tables of proven methods on two dozen major rivers. Gary Anderson shares his intimate knowledge of the salmon and its rivers only after many years of detailed observation and research. There are over a hundred photographs covering ascore of rivers as well as line drawings, sketches and maps by wildlite ar tist Ed Sutton. This book is of interest to any fisherman who has dreamed of one day fishing the mighty salmon. It will teach the novice how to begin and for the most devout expert it will provide new insights.

"In the late 1920s, Canada's economy was sliding into depression. Life savings were evaporating, unemployment was rising, and exports were falling. On the strength of a promise to 'blast' Canada's way into world markets -- and thus stop the economy's downward spiral -- Richard Bedford Bennett defeated Mackenzie King at the polls on July 28, 1930, and assumed the leadership of the country. Over the next five years, however, Bennett's name became synonymous with the worst of the Depression -- from Bennett buggies, to Bennett coffee, to Bennett boroughs. Today, he is widely viewed as a difficult man, an ineffectual leader, and an opportunistic politician who betrayed his conservative beliefs in an attempt to curry popularity.

In Bennett: The Rebel Who Challenged and Changed a Nation, John Boyko offers not only the first major biography of the man, but a fresh perspective on the old scholarship. Boyko looks at the prime minister's sometimes controversial and often misunderstood policies through a wider lens, one that shows not a politician angling for votes, but rather a man following through on a life-long dedication to a greater role for government in society and the economy." - from the dustjacket.

Square 8vo, brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Hand, ABookman's Guide to Hunting, Shooting, Angling, and Related Subjects, C70. "Veteran adventurer Peter Hathaway Capstick explores the wide world of maneaters -- creatures who regard homo sapien as just another meal ticket. Fromthe jungles of Asia and South America to the African bush, and to our own supposedly civilized America, the types and varieties of maneaters are surprisingly numerous and incredibly widespread. And the danger from them is very real even today. The characters in this book are real, and the ultimate horror of being eaten alive is real. Within these pages one will meet the great cats, bears, sharks, the devil fish -- piranha, crocodiles, and a hostof others, including the most fearsome maneater of all -- man himself. The feasome legend of some, such as the killer whale r the American cougar, wi ll be found to be just that -- largely legend. On the other hand, our 'tame' and so carefully protected alligator may not be the ideal swimming companion!" - from the dustjacket. Light soiling to front inner gutter, else verygood in lightly nicked dustjacket. 25.00

Hand, A Bookman's Guide to Hunting, Shooting, Angling, and Related Subjects, C71. "Until now, Capstick has written post-facto about classic hunters of the past and safaris in which he participated as a professional hunter. 'Peter Capstick's Africa', however, is a very different breed of book: it is the enthralling tale of an entirely new safari, an exciting first-person adventure in which Peter Capstick returns to the long grass for his own dangerous and very personal excurision. [...] In 1985, Capstick went back into the African bush with two top photographers and a crack professional hunter. It was a venture undertaken for personal challenge, and for the chance to look anew atwhat had become of the Africa immortalized in his own earlier works." - fr om the dustajcket.
