One of the great nature classics, this iconic novel tells of one year in the fisher's life, a magnificent fur-bearer larger than the marten which inhabits the forests of North America. Seldom glimpsed, he is solitary and nocturnal. Based on fact, this novel tells the story of one year in the fisher's life -- from the spring of his infancy to the next spring, when his first mating occurs. It is the story of struggle and survival as he establishes his territory, battles with fellow predators, and faces the harsh months of winter. It is also a story of the lessons he learns from the most dangerous predator of all - man. Along with the fisher's world, there are vignettes of the animals who share his terrain, and the mingling of their stories forms a tapestry of the interdependence of all living things.
