KIRKUS REVIEW

Fishing like an Indian is not necessarily doing it the hard way -- the author makes it seem far more sensible (and often a lot more clever) than by purchased rod and reel. Chapters cover the implements and how to make them, the techniques (night fishing with torches, spear fishing, ice fishing) and time tested methods of trail safety. The chapter on cleaning and cooking a catch is especially well done and the methods -- open fire, clay mold and reflector -- will inspire even more respect for Indian ingenuity. This is illustrated by the author (an adopted Chippewa and authority on Indian lore) and his drawings are remarkably clear and decorative at one and the same time. The binding is stout and text/picture placement allows for rebinding. This is a sure-fire item for scouts and handy-survival enthusiasts.
