More Description

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 that 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 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.
