The Downeast Lakes Land Trust and the Grand Lake Stream Historical Society are pleased to host a discussion of Paul J. Fournier’s first book, Tales from Misery Ridge, One man’s adventures in the great outdoors.

Paul J. Fournier has been a registered Maine Guide, bush pilot, sporting camp owner, nature photographer, videographer, television producer and a longtime official with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife. Tales from Misery Ridge, One man’s adventures in the great outdoors details his experiences and adventures in Maine’s Great North Woods and beyond.

Readers will soar with him on his first solo flight in a Piper Cub, see how a master builder makes Fournier’s dream canoe a reality, meet brave flying Maine Wardens on rescue calls, net some spectacularly large salmon, and take part in an historic mission to transplant caribou from Newfoundland to Maine. Tales from Misery Ridge is a collection of those and other stories from a special time — and place.
