Overview

The Miramichi River has twin origins — in the southwest, from its headwaters at Miramichi Lake in the Appalachian Mountains, where it flows into the Lustagoocheech ("good little river") and in the northwest, from the Emunokun ("a beaver hole"). The branches merge, race over rapid runs, broaden, deepen, and rush into the Atlantic.

This richly illustrated volume brings the character of the Miramichi River to life, revealing the determined originality and vibrant spirit of its people. Here you'll meet loggers, musicians, guides, craftspeople, a remarkable brother and sister, the owner of a bait shop, survivors of the Escuminac Disaster, and a guy who'd be glad to pour you a pint. Of all the characters assembled here, the mightiest of all, suffusing the people of this region with that tincture that makes them unique, is the river itself.
