Product Description

From the Back Cover

An affectionate portrait of the Miramichi by a son of the river. In Currents in the Stream, Wayne Curtis describes communities from Juniper to Loggieville and some of the notable people and events which have contributed to the story of this special region. Writing about founders and settlers, poets and musicians, politicians and poachers, as well as the ballads and songs that draw on the Irish tradition, Curtis offers an introduction to the vivid history of the Miramichi valley.
