Overview

On a bitterly cold day with a driving wind, Brian Atkinson met three generations of the Williston family of Hardwicke and went out onto the ice of Miramichi Bay to take photos of them smelting. He was looking for story ideas for Canadian Geographic. Something in the character of this family and its patriarch, 75-year-old Theodore — a survivor of the Escuminac Disaster of 1959 in which 35 fishermen lost their lives, piqued Brian's interest.

Many river folk, photos, stories, and adventures later, a book had taken shape: Miramichi: River of Character. This richly illustrated volume brings the character of the Miramichi to life, revealing in images and text the determined originality and vibrant spirit of the people of the Miramichi.
