Cache Lake Country: Life in the North Woods
Cache Lake Country Life in the North Woods Author:John J. Rowlands Wilderness Edition. Includes index. Canada. — Cache Lake Country is a vivid and faithful chronicle of life in the great North Woods and a storehouse of valuable information on woodcraft and nature. With its more than two hundred delightful drawings, it takes the reader through mile after mile of pine and balsam, across mirrored lakes and down rus... more »hing rivers into a "back of beyond"--still safe from civilization.
Cache Lake Country holds the secrets of how to live well in the woods. It is a tale of contentment and simple living in a friendly wilderness through twelve months of a year. This is a country of Indian trappers and big game, where timber wolves run the hills in the long winter nights; spring brings the big Canada geese and the song birds, and, in summer, moose and deer come down to the lakes, and bears feed on the blueberry barrens. In this book, a woodsman, with senses sharpened by long and careful observation, has recorded life in the woods as it is never revealed to the casual traveleer.
John J. Rowlands spent six years proxpecting the gold and silver country south of Hudson Bay and as a surveyor and miner in Cobalt when that fabulous Canadian silver camp was at the height of its fame. His collaborator, Henry B. Kane, is widely known for his distinguished photographs and drawings, which have illustrated his own nature books (notably Thoreau's Walden) as well as the books of other authors. These two, woodsman-author and naturalist-illustrator, have combined their knowledge and skills to make Cache Lake Country one of the most enjoyable of outdoor books.« less
