A Governor General’s Literary Award winner in 1943 for non-fiction. John Robins was an English professor at the University of Toronto who loved Algonquin Park and loved to fish. The idea for writing this humorous, semi-fictional story of a Park fishing trip developed while Dr. Robin and his brother Tom were stranded on an island in Dickson lake for three whole days due to high winds. They began to recall the other fishing trips that they had taken in previous years, and to recount the amusing and tragic experiences that had occurred. Dr. Robins had a notebook in his pack, and the rough notes he made therein became the basis for this book.--goodreads.com. [Suggest a different description.]
