Review by Job Patstone

Sea Winter Salmon is a history of the Hill family’s land claims on the Rivière St. Jean on Québec’s North Shore. The area was first mapped by Jacques Cartier’s expedition in 1534. The Hill family acquired its claim on the land in 1887.

Under the guidance of James J. Hill, the author’s great-grandfather, the family reached an agreement with the provincial government to lease the river and build a fishing camp, which family members still operate today.

The book progresses from the construction of what would become Hill Camp in 1901 to the present, relating timeless stories of some of the famous people who frequented it, taking advantage of one of the best Atlantic salmon fishing areas in North America.

The book includes superb photographs taken over the years by the Hill family and camp guests, as well as more recent photos by the author.

The history and personalities involved in running the camp make for a great read, whether or not you’re a fishing enthusiast.
