As the region celebrates the creation of the City of Miramichi and prepares for a new century, Miramichi Magic offers the reader a rare opportunity: a truly timeless glimpse of the river and its people.

The mighty, magical, mythic Miramichi: the Miramichi is not simply a river, but a complex system of rivers, streams, brooks - and towns, villages, and harbours - each with a different face and mood.  The river and the people who live alongside it are the subjects of this fascinating and revealing odyssey through New Brunswick's famed Miramichi Region.  Travel with photographer CATHY CARNAHAN as she explores her homeland, from the pristine communities "upriver," to the vibrant heart of Miramichi City, to the proud fishing villages of the bay.  Most of all, CATHY CARNAHAN invites us to meet her fellow Miramichiers: the farmers, dignitaries, fishers, business owners, craftspeople, musicians and artists whose lives are as unique and varied as the Miramichi itself.

"The words are beautiful, but they are only a prelude to the stunning photographs. The book itself is an excellent collage of color photos which takes the reader along the length of the Miramichi River... Carnahan uses the poet's eye through the camera lens to capture the river itself, the land and the people."
