206 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H), hard cover (teale blue boards with gold leaf pattern and lettering on spine and front board) - no dust jacket. ISBN 077107414X B&w illustrations. A fictionalized life of one of the world's great fighting fish. "Below the surface of the Kawartha Lakes is the strange, fierce, forbidding world of eternal conflict for survival. Here is the world of the great game fish, the muskellunge, Ma-Kee. The muskellunge is the fierces, strongest and most voracious of our freshwa ter fish, a king of the water as the lion is king of the jungle. From birth to death, Ma-Kee is surrounded by violence and danger. In infancy, she escapes by a thin fin from becoming a meal for minnows and water beetles, and as her size increases, she in turn becomes a savage hunter: a hunter prized by human hunters - 'Ma-Kee' is not only a book for the ardent fisherman, who enjoys the tug of a powerful tale; it will also find itself in the hands of anyone who cherishes the dramatic yet int imate relationship between animal and man." Small or slight bump at corners of boards, light wear at corners and top/bottom of spine, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, 2" scuff/soiling line on rear board. Good+
