Land Surveying is one of civilization's oldest professions, going back thousands of years to the ancient Egyptians and Mesopotamians. Historical stories abound of the early surveyors who mapped and opened up the settlement of North America. JFW DesBarres, one of Nova Scotia's prominent early surveyors is reputed to have danced on a bar-room table in celebration of his 100 birthday. Stories unique to land surveying will continue to be created as present day surveyors persist in defining and maintaining the fabric of our land tenure system.This book is a personal collection of anecdotes from one Canadian land surveyor's early experiences. This edition of "Tales From The Survey Camp" includes a bonus novella: A work of fiction entitled "Willing Escort," by David C. Clark.
