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."

Cleophas Belvin paints a vivid picture of the arrival of the Aboriginals and the activities of the Breton and Basque fishermen and French- and English-speaking merchants from Quebec City who controlled the region for more than one hundred and fifty years. He describes the lifestyle and living conditions of the early pioneers and their descendants, offering an analysis of why they settled in the region and how they dealt with the precariousness of the seal, salmon, and cod fisheries. The Forgotten Labrador alsoexplores the role of the Anglican and Catholic missionaries, the establish ment of educational, medical, transportation, and communication services and the initiatives undertaken to provide the people with some form of economic prosperity." - rear of dustjacket.

18 BERTON, Pierre GALLANT, André Seacoasts
Stoddart, Toronto, 1998, 
BERTON, Pierre. Seacoasts. Photographs by André Gallant. (Toronto): Stoddart, (1998). Pp. 222. Illustrated. Oblong 4to, black cloth. A bright pictorial showcasing the history and geography of the Atlantic, Pacific, and Arcticcoasts of Canada, supplemented with stunning photography. "Canada boasts t he longest coastline in the world. If it were straightened out 'it could bewound around the equator three and a half times and there would still be a bit left over. The beauty and the majesty of the seas surrounds Canada on three sides, offering a rich and varied landscape of fiords and inlets, salt marshes and tidal mudflats, sandbars and tombolos, pebbled beaches, spits, berms, and marine cliffs, washed, scoured,and half drowned by the tides and fragrant winds.' History made to come alive. Here are the potlatch people of the Pacific coast, whose leisure society gave the world a unique art; here are tales of the Arctic and the North West Passage; and the golden ageof sail on Atlantic shores. Photos include the dark mysteries of the Pacif ic rain forest and the serpentine channels of the Mackenzie Delta to the towering cliffs of Baffin Island and the vistas of the Cabot Trail. Accompanied by rare archival photos that bring to life the great days of the Artic whalers, of Maritime shipbuilding and the turn-of-the-century boom of the Pacific coast salmon industry. The book is a plea for marine conservation. The Pacific salmon, the Atlantic cod, the sea otter and the bowhead whale populations are becoming extinct. It is a celebration of our coastal heritage,a lament for a flawed past and a call for decisive action in the future." Vg in dj. 25.00
