Details

"First published in 1882 the book tells, in an engaging humorous and deadpan style, the adventures of three friends who set out to fish and shoot through one long summer, travelling by canoe and camping along the way. This amusing party make light of the rigours of outdoor life in Norway and enjoy every minute of their idyllic tour. Pristine lakes full of big eager trout, which have never seen an artificial fly, heather hills rich with ptarmigan and deer, the sturdy characters among the Norwegian country folk they encounter, all are described with a freshness and verve which are irresistible. A typical sentence from the book: "It continued raining in a nice keep-at-it-all-day-if-you-like kind of manner, so we resided in the tent and read, and indulged in whisky and water for lunch to counteract any ill effects of the reading - for some it was poetry." With a new introduction by Jon Beer who followed in the footsteps of Lees and Clutterbuck over 100 years later.
