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."  The writing style, and the way the book is put together, is humorous in parts, and romantic and serious in others.  Not to be missed, this much-overlooked novel is one of those that, once read, will bring back memories years later.  Well worth the read.  Recommended.
