Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0919948774, Paperback)This book is a recollection of stories and anecdotes about growing up in a small Newfoundland village. It is a story of childhood and poignant memories as told from the viewpoint of a mature man reflecting on his past. The richness of life amidst the lack of wealth is caught in the author's clear and eloquent style.
All the detail of the outport home, the one-room school, the awesome churches, the inspiring trading schooners, the eerie superstitions and beliefs make this book an enthralling experience for the reader. The reader is not deluded into romantic nostalgia but kept alert to the joys and contentment that were snatched from a life where hardship and deprivation were fundamental facts.
