215 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "Roderick Haig-Brown's fame as a writer, a conservationist and judge made him a widely recognized public figure. His books on fly fishing brough him an international reputation and visitors from all over the world. His wife Ann shared in many aspects of Roderick's public life, while also establishing her own more local, but nonetheless significant, reputation as an inspirational librarian and teacher, and a community activist. Now their eldest daugher Valerie has written an intimate biography of her parents that reveals the private lives behind the public figures - their intense devotion to each other, their mutual love of books, the daily delights and frustrations of life on a small farm while juggling careers of writing, teaching, judging and raising four children. Much of the book is based on private correspondence between Ann and Roderick, both before and during their marriage, as well as Roderick's early diaries, and letters to their children in later years." Book is Near fine. Dust jacket has very minor rubbing on the rear panel.
