A Man in the Open

by Roger Pocock

A most unusual book, a rare book, a strange book, a book entirely different, is Roger Pocock's Man in the Open. It is a dramatic novel. A drama in story form, with two chief characters doing a monologue when the curtain rises. The author claims that the story is true. It is remarkably romantic and deals with a rough Texan, born on the Labrador coast; first a trapper, then a sailor, a cowboy, and a ranger in northern Canada. Full of a quaint humor, true brother to the animals, big and little, and the birds of the wild, such a lover of Nature as all men ought to be, a philosopher by divine right and ordination he passes through a series of terrible and happy experiences which he meets as becomes "a man of the open."
