The Royal Reprobate


The Royal Reprobate True Tales from the Wilderness (The Funny Side of Life) by Paton Lodge Lindsay

The Royal Reprobate is a companion book to King of Algonquin Park and The King’s Ransom. This third book is a compilation of more true stories 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 has stepped right out of the pages of a history book…as though he was his voyageur ancestor returned from the past, reincarnated, and “beamed-up” to the present.

The buck-skin clad trapper stood quietly at the shore, one foot in his canoe, pack and rifle slung over one shoulder, and, as he leaned on the paddle, looked like an old land baron surveying his wilderness kingdom. He was a real man among men; the icon of what a real man was and should be: self-sufficient and beholden to no one; roughly hewn and ruggedly handsome. It was rumoured this Clark Gable look-alike was born in a canoe in a snowstorm.

You won’t get through this book without a lot a laughter and years as the old Royal Reprobate of a trapper and the young “Citiot” of a girl share some of their stories “from the funny side of life.”
