9781894673044: The Last Guide: A Story of Fish and Love

"Ask any good journalist what the best part of the job is and he's likely to say the serendipitous moment when one story turns into another. A few years ago, the Ottawa Citizen's Ron Corbett set out to write a tale on wolves in Ontario's Algonquin Provincial Park. A chance encounter at a gas station led him to the front door of Frank Kuiack, who, Corbett was told, knew a good deal about the park's wolves. When Corbett went to meet him, he learned something remarkable about Kuiack. He was the last of the old-time fishing guides still working full-time in the park. ""Kuiack's life,"" he writes, ""seemed to be a counterpoint to the many changes that had taken place over the years, not only around Algonquin Park, but elsewhere in Canada."" "
