A charming guidebook from the period before the establishment of fishing camps along the Restigouche. With some discussion of fish, fishing conditions, and the many rivers of the area. "The Restigouche.-This noble river, which is second only to the St. John in size of the rivers of New Brunswick, is frequented by salmon...The scenery on the Restigouche is also very fine, and an admirable tour for one who has plenty of time on his hands is to ascend to the headwaters of the St. John, go up its tributary the Grand River in a bark canoe, cross the portage, which is only some two or three miles in length, to the Wagaasis, a tributary of the Restigouche, and go down with the stream fishing, fowling or sketching as his tastes incline" (p. 65). Not in Lande.
