CLEAR RECOLLECTIONS: MEMOIRS OF PERCY NOBBS

Author: Karen Molson

Synopsis: Architect and McGill University professor Percy Nobbs was a fisherman, tying a fly with the same thought and precision he used when designing a building. And Percy was a storyteller. He faced all challenges and ran every race. He canoed in dangerous rapids and sailed in treacherous seas. From the Scottish hills and rivers, to life in Russia, to Montreal and the Ottawa River; he lived a fascinating life of fishing, hunting, boating, and antagonistics, then chronicled them in his memoirs. He worked hard and played hard and left readers these colourful tales of danger, tragedy, bravery, foolishness, and humour.
