  1. Negley Farson , The Way of a Transgressor. An amazing auto biography taking the reader into Russia in WW1 , across Europe and into the wilds of Vancouver Island where he and his wife lived for two years on a houseboat. Journalist failed salesman for trucks, severely injured in an early plain crash and most important an avid angler Negley 's exploits were stupendous. Blackpowder
