Overly dried char at Kitchecut. In camp, the weather was over 35 degrees Celsius for two or more days in July. – William Noah 2005 With his strong attachment to the land, Noah has expressed increasing concern over the effects of climate change and other environmental issues. Discussing his vivid depiction of the fish as split with its red interior turned out for drying in the sun, he notes that the strangely high temperature that summer had affected the way the fish had cured.
