"The author undertakes to deliver 'a round, unvarnished tale;' his yarn is the plain story of what he calls two 'common and inadequate' fishermen, their tribulations and exaltations on a fishing trip through the great Algonquin Park in Ontario. What happened to them has happened, with variations, to hundreds of their kind. [...] The narrative beigns properly at the beginning, with plans worked out in winter against the enchanted days, with the equipping of the expedition, with all thenearly sacred ritual of preparing canoe and tent and tackle and grub. Then come the actual setting forth, and the tentative easing out of civilized l ife into the life of the bush. [...] And now there is the moment when our two happy 'duffers' shove off the canoe for the first stretch of paddling, and taste the sweetness of ther realization that the world is well lost." - from the dustjacket. With jaunts to the fork of the Crow and White Partridge rivers, Lake Lavieille, Lake Lavague, and many points in between. "A light-hearted story of a camping trip in Algonquin Park in Ontario. Great whimsy, and not a dissertation on how to present a fly, drift a nymph or work a glide." - from Bruns, p. 385.

Volume 12 in Canada's Atlantic Folklore-Folklife Series. "Until my tenth birthday I never doubted I would be a riverman like my father. Growing up with the Gander River only three miles from our doorstep and the canoes coming and going all summer and the men talking aroujnd the kitchen stove on winter nights of salmon and caribou and lynx, how could I doubt? It seemed only a matter of time until I would have my own canoe and dog team and trapline and go guiding in the summer and fall and furring in the wintertime." - from the author's preface. "Gander is one of the best known small towns in the world, especially among western and eastern Europeans. Russians know it with familiarity. This book is not about Gander,however, despite its notoriety; rather it concerns the great wilderness th at surrounds Gander, the magnificent Gander River, laden with salmon; the limitless forests abounding with game. Much has been written about the seafaring Newfoundlander and his exploits on the bay, bight, tickle or sea, but literally nothing has been written about the Newfoundlander as a woodsman. This book then, fills that tremendous gap and gives us, through the life-long experiences of one man, all the excitement, lure and love that a preoccupation with the land can bring" - the publisher."
