SALMON STORIES160 Years of Salmon Stories

With almost 400 pages of stories, photos and historical information, this hard-cover book honors the men and women from the Miramichi Valley and beyond who were inducted into the Hall of Fame between 1983 and 2012.  Some of the names like sportsman Theodore “Ted” Williams, wildlife artist Arthur J. Taylor, and authors Wayne Curtis and David Adams Richards will be instantly recognizable.  Others like guide William “Willy” Basco, fly tyer Wallace “Wally” Doak, and the owners of Wilson’s Sporting Camps on the Upper Miramichi will simply evoke fond memories of happy hours spent in pursuit of the elusive Atlantic salmon.  Written by local author and experienced story teller Morris Green, 160 Years of Salmon Stories comprises 128 “short stories” that, in just a few paragraphs, will transport you out on the river.  The book is available for sale at $60 (shipping and handling extra) in our Riverside Treasures gift shop, or by contacting the Museum at either 506-365-7787, or museum@nbnet.nb.ca.
