This tale of a young man's first summer as a commercial salmon fisherman on the BC coast, written in 1948 by the renowned fisherman and outdoor adventure writer Roderick Haig-Brown, has become a modern classic.Don Morgan has made enough money trapping on northern Vancouver Island to realize his dream: he has bought himself a 32-foot West Coast salmon troller, Mallard . In early summer, with his pal Tubby, he sets off on his great adventure, which does not unfold quite as he had pictured it. Don has a lot to learn--not just about commercial fishing, but about growing up. The fishing is so poor that Don could lose his beloved boat before the first season is over. But in the end, Don's own good sense prevails, his real friends come through, and he finds a way to overcome his troubles--running into some real-life adventure in the process.
