Allan Moses was a legendary figure, who was better known abroad than at home. A fisherman from Grand Manan, New Brunswick, Moses's fame began when he identified an albatross captured in the Bay of Fundy, 7000 miles away from its Antarctic home. Thus began a career that led Moses to South America, west Africa, and back to the Bay of Fundy once again on scientific expeditions that changed the history of ornithology.

From the Back Cover:

In 1929 Allan Moses, a fisherman from Grand Manan, parleyed an ornithological "find" into a bird preservation area, leading the way for the development of several bird sanctuaries on Canada's eastern coast. Without his work, the common eider population would now be decimated and many of the shorebirds which nest in the Bay of Fundy would be endangered, if not extinct.

But the discovery of an albatross also gave a strange twist to Moses' career, bringing his interests to the attention of several museums, including the Cleveland Museum and the American Museum of Natural History, which later sponsored his ornithological expeditions to the South Atlantic and West Africa.

About the Author:

A former journalist and director of Canadian History for the New Brunswick Museum, L.K. Ingersoll was a founding member of the Grand Manan Museum and the editor of the Grand Manan Historian.
