The King’s Ransom is a companion book to King of Algonquin Park featuring more stories and adventures of the exceptional and well-known wilderness man, Joseph Emmett Chartrand, who became a legend in his own time.
He struggled from childhood to survive in the remote, rugged wilderness that is Algonquin Park. He was a man from a different time; it was as though he had stepped right out of the pages of a history book—as though he were his voyageur ancestor resurrected from the past, reincarnated and “beamed up” to the present.
The old bushman from the wilderness was a person whom so many upon seeing his approach would have crossed the road to avoid the encounter. They would have promptly judged him to be an un-educated, uncouth, unruly, slovenly, homeless old man who lived an undesirable lifestyle. In not bending to first judgement, author Paton Lodge Lindsay who was a young city girl at the time, came to know the old man in life and in love, moving from best enemies to a lifetime relationship.
“He taught me so much about life and living; about peace and the beauty in nature, and through extreme hardship to seek out the truth, to live life unencumbered by material goods, and to cope and deal with the daily events in life. He taught me to know myself, to be responsible and self-sufficient and he taught me that YES, I WAS my brother’s keeper.”
