Lees, J.A. & Clutterbuck, W.J.: Three in Norway. v2. 30 Jul 2010

Three in Norway (by two of them) is a travelogue from the 19th century in Norway. First published in 1882, the book tells, in an engaging humorous and deadpan style, the adventures of three friends who set out to fish and shoot through one long summer, traveling by canoe and camping along the way in Jotunheimen, a mountainous area. This amusing party make light of the rigours of outdoor life in Norway and enjoy every minute of their idyllic tour. Pristine lakes full of large eager trout, which have never seen an artificial fly, heather hills rich with ptarmigan and reindeer, the sturdy characters among the Norwegian country folk they encounter, all are described with a freshness and verve which are irresistible. (From wikipedia).

It served at an inspiration for Three Men in a Boat, by Jerome K Jerome.

This is the first book I have posted here. Feedback welcome.

Thanks for the upload!

It looks very nice using Lucidor and EPubReader.

Converts okay to mobi for Kindle, although the margin settings seem to make it indent unevenly on one side, and for some reason, the Table of Contents and List of Illustrations all run together into one giant block of text with no line breaks.

But I expect that's a limitation of the prc/mobi format or some sort of bug in Kindlegen. And margin aside, the actual text formatting reads very nicely indeed.

About the only improvement I could possibly suggest would be to use curly quotes. But that's a minor typographical nicety which some people prefer to do without.

The source material from PGDP had single quotes. I didn't ( and don't) want to edit the text after three rounds of proofreading - just add some formatting

Thanks for posting this. Once upon a time I owned this book and I'd forgotten all about it till I saw your post here. I'm looking forward to reading it again.
