    schema:reviewBody ""In 1927, Frank Parker Day wrote his autobiographical reflections on fishing, family, and, more broadly, humanity's place in the natural world. The Autobiography of a Fisherman is a memoir, providing insight into a society where people were struggling to survive in a depressed economy, contending with the social pressures of local village life, and responding in one way or the other to the pull of the big city." "Day details his early introduction to fishing, which became a life-long passion, at once a 'gentle art' and a 'disease.' Studying at Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship, Day found his fervour for fishing was shared by many, but while at the University of Berlin studying Beowulf, he lamented that he 'did no trout fishing.'" "Eventually, Day returned to Canada and was hired as an English professor at the University of New Brunswick, knowing it to be 'the centre of a well-watered district.' The reader sees him through his last fishing experience with his father before his father dies, as well as through the First World War during which time he 'never wet a line, ' and beyond, as he married, built a family, and continued to fish. Day's reflections suggest the restorative powers of the environment and should appeal even to those readers who have never thought to sit quietly by the side of a stream, line in hand, waiting."--Jacket." ;
