Anticosti

£40.00

Product description

Item Description: Les Editions JCL Enr., 1979. Slip Case. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Limited/Numbered. This book is written entirely in French. The book and slipcase are in good condition.
This is book number 274 out of 300.
This biography information is from the ASF's (Atlantic Salmon Federation) Hall of Fame: Charles McCormick was the grandson of Irish immigrants who came to Canada in the latter part of the 19th Century. His early years were spent in the Ottawa valley. In 1926 Charlie went to Anticosti to work for a lumberman and he stayed until his retirement 50 years later. Anticosti Island is a veritable sportsman's paradise, with a number of excellent salmon rivers and a white-tailed deer population exceeding any other location in North America. Charlie was to spend his life managing and protecting those wildlife resources. As a game warden, he patrolled the remote island regularly, and poachers he apprehended ended up before an irate Justice of the Peace - none other than Charlie himself - and they were banished from Anticosti with Charlie escorting them to the departure dock. Most of them wisely never returned. He was often referred to as "King of Anticosti", but there was no pretension about this modest, cheerful man who devoted his life to wildlife conservation. Signed by Author(s).

Oxfam Bookshop Balham

Balham, or 'The Gateway to the South' as Peter Sellers once called it, is a bustling corner of south west London, situated between Clapham and Tooting. The area is well known for its comedy heritage, thanks in no small part to Sellers's sketch, as well as comedy circuit staple The Bedford Arms and famous residents Arthur Smith, Andy Zaltzman and Richard Herring. The area also hosts something of a literary heritage with DBC Pierre having written his Booker prize-winning first novel in Balham. Our bookshop is located on the busy High Road just down the road from the tube station which was bombed in October 1940, an event immortalised in Ian McEwan's Atonement.
