(Description) Small stain inside front cover, else like new in unclipped, like new DJ. ***(Synopsis) Roderick Langmere Haig-Brown, writer, magistrate, angler, conservationist, was well-known to many readers in North America and other English speaking areas of the world. His books on fishing. brought him the accolade of 'the Isaac Walton of North America.' His home on the banks of Campbell River, in British Columbia, which he and his wife named Above Tide, has become virtually a shrine for visitors who knew him through his books or in his many activities as Chancellor of the University of Victoria, member of the International Pacific Salmon Fisheries Commission, public speaker or simply as a friend. But all this made up only the public man, and that was not the whole man. For this biography, E. Bennett Metcalfe went to Haig-Brown's most intimate beginnings and experiences, found access to his diaries and letters and school life and studied the man's social and political context in order to locate and examine clues to the man behind the image.
