 "Alone But Never Lonely"

By Bob Fidler

The publisher and my niece, Lori Long, have developed a web page,, to promote the newly published book. Not only does it contain information about the book, it has photos of the subject's home on Great Slave Lake along with his sled dogs.There are also several mood pictures of summer scenes on the tundra of the Northwest Territories of Canada taken by me while canoeing in the very region he trapped.

Laura has a new supply of books available at the sale barn available for purchase.


Alone But Never Lonely
by Bob Fidler

Gus D’Aoust (1897-1990) was a legend, an icon of the Northwest Territories. He was a well-known adventurer, explorer, hunter, and above all, a dedicated and passionate Barren Land trapper. In this inhospitable environment beyond the tree line, he lived his life doing what he loved. His endeavors came near the end of the late, great fur trading era when white trappers stretched across the Tundra for hundreds of miles. This is his story including labors, hardships, philosophy, and other life events and experiences as told by him to the author in 1973.

Bob Fidler, teacher (now retired), enjoyed many years of Canadian canoe tripping throughout Ontario and parts of the Northwest Territories. Born into a family of outdoorsmen with hunting and fishing a way of life, it was so easy and natural for him to become absorbed in the life of the subject.
