Book Description

April 1 1986 0919519733 978-0919519732
Gander is one of the best known small towns in the world, especially among weste and easte Europeans. Russians know it with familiarity. This book is not about Gander, however, despite its notoriety; rather it conce s the great wilde ess 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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A trip into the past Feb. 7 2006
By Terry Cusack - Published on Amazon.com
Have you ever wondered what the "old time" life was really like?

How did they do it? How did they manage to survive?

This is a story of survival and living off and from the land in rural Newfoundland in the early 1900's.

It is the story of a man who had a very strong bond with the outdoors and especially a river. His river, the Gander, it can cast a spell on you.

It is one of the few places in the world that you can leave your watch off, get up with the birds and live a lifetime in a day. I know because for 21 years I did exactly that. I had a lodge on that river and lived the life.

This book is not only about survival,the people in he book did that, but they also managed to prosper in the face of hard times.

If you have ever longed for a trip "in country" then get a copy of this book, you won't put it down.
