In 1887, at the age of just 18, intellectually and artistically gifted American Tappan Adney embarked on his first trip to New Brunswick. He had plans to enrol at Columbia University in the fall, primed for a meteoric rise in academia — but fate intervened. He fell under the spell of the wilderness of Maine, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia, and the local Maliseet people. Nothing escaped his curiosity, Adney embarked on hunting, fishing, and camping trips with Humboldt (Hum) Sharp, his future brother-in-law; Peter Joseph, who would become his Maliseet mentor; and Purps, Hum's hunting dog.
Adney recorded his wilderness adventures in his journals through evocative sketches and memorable prose, including the detail of a caribou hunt decades before their extinction in this area of the country. Tappan Adney's writings, illustrations, and photographs were published in Harper's Magazine. His models of aboriginal canoes, now in many museum collections, helped save the birchbark canoe from oblivion.
From the Inside Flap:
At the age of 18, Tappan Adney embarked on his first trip to Canada. He had plans to return to New York in the fall, but fate intervened — he fell under the spell of the New Brunswick wilderness and the Maliseet people.
Nothing escaped Andey's attention. He recorded the details of snowshoes and birchbark canoes and the Native names for birds and animals. He chronicled a caribou hunt on snowshoes, decades before woodland caribou became extinct in eastern Canada. In the journals, he recorded his travels from New York to New Brunswick, Quebec, and Nova Scotia.
The Travel Journals of Tappan Adney, 1887-1890 is the first published version of Adney's first two journals. He would write three more before 1896. Retaining the authenticity of Adney's writing, this volume preserves the language of the day and spellings of names and places. It also includes reproductions of Adney's original sketches and a few early photographs.
