A fish of puzzling moods and limited predictability, the Atlant ic salmon is not easily understood. This book helps unravel the mysteries of this king of fishes. It is an authoritative and personal account not onlyof the salmon and how it can be tempted to the fly, but of its preferences , personality and behaviour. It is a tale of the salmon's life and prospects; it is a record of the lore and traditions which surround salmon fishing in Canada and the United States. 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. The book is written with a depth of understanding and appreciation of nature which inextricably links the angler with the salmon and the vaiues of the past with thepromise of the future."

It was a quest for far more precious material. Theirs was tto penetrate the secrets of Nature locked in unmapped jungles and mountains guarded by fierce primitive peoples. Head-hunters and cannibals these savages have been called and rightly so, yet New Guinea Expedition is not a blood and thunder record of white men shooting their way in and shooting their way out of the country. Although the explorers were prepared for attacks and other hazards, their most effective weapon of defense proved to be the respoect they showed for the rights and strange customs of the natives." - from the dj.

BALLARD, Robert D., with Malcolm McCONNELL. Adventures in Ocean Exploration: From the Discovery of the Titanic to the Search for Noah's Flood. Washin gton, D.C.: National Geographic, (2001). First Trade Edition. Pp [1]-288. Illustrated. Index. 4to, blue cloth, silver lettering to front board and spine. Contents : 1. The Ancient Depths. 2. The Mysterious Sea. 3. Linking theShores. 4. The New World. 5. Ocean Highways. 6. War at Sea. 7. Science Ben eath the Sea. 8. The Living Ocean. 9. The Museum of the Deep. "One of our leading oceanographers and a National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence, Ballard describes plunging 12-000 feet to the floor of the Atlantic, finding new life in the superheated water around hydrothermal vents on the Pacific seabed, and locating scores of wrecks, from Phoenician galleys to the Nazi battleship Bismarck. We peer from the cramped cabin of a research submarine at bioluminescent fish glowing in the sunless depths, gasp for air as the bathyscaphe Archimede fills with acrid smoke a mile beneath the surface of the sea, and join a crack team of technicians on the bridge of a research ship as they “fly" a state-of-the-art unmanned submersible over the Titanic's ghostly hull. But this lavishly illustrated book does much more than chronicle Ballard's own unique experiences: Intertwined with his vivid first person narrative is a concise history of humankind's age-old relationship with the oceans. Along with the giants of modern undersea exploration – Cousteau, Beebe, Piccard - he introduces the fabled seamen of the past, from ancient Phoenician, Polynesian, and Chinese sailors to such great names as Magellan, Columbus, Drake, and Cook. He explains how ships evolved from simple coastal craft to the most complex machines known to man, and shows how the search for new trade routes and the sheer love of adventure led captains everfarther over the horizon. He traces the development of navigation, naval w arfare, marine science, and much more. Capturing all the irresistible lure of the sea in nearly 200 vivid illustrations and a lively text that spans thousands of years of seafaring and oceanography, this is a book as expansive as its subject and filled with fascinating information, stirring history,and a full measure of the infectious excitement of discovery Robert Ballar d knows so well." - from the dj.

"In 1905, after beingserved rancid meat, more than seven hundred Russian sailors mutinied again st their officers aboard what was then one of the most powerful battleshipsin the world. Theirs was a life barely worth living -- a life of hard labo r and bitter oppression, an existence, in its hopelessness and injustice, not unlike that of most of the working class in Russia at the time. Certainly their rebellion came as no surprise. Still, against any reasonable odds of success, the sailors-turned-revolutionaries, led by the charismatic firebrand Matyushenko, risked their lives to take control of the ship and fly the red flag of revolution. What followed was a violent port-to-port chase that spanned eleven harrowing days and came to symbolize the Russian Revolution itself." - from the dustjacket. Very good in dustjacket. 12.00
