Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 088133863X, Paperback)

Kennedy takes his readers to a remote part of Canada in this descriptive ethnography of daily life in a subarctic community in southeastern Labrador. Here, two seasonal villages--one used during summer, the other during winter--form one community largely occupied by the same people. In spring, families move to the coast to fish, returning to their sheltered bay homes in fall to hunt, trap, and harvest wood. Kennedy, who calls himself a "privileged outsider," explores persistence and change in this small-scale community, an insulated world of icebergs, salted codfish, traplines, and ghost stories. We learn about Labrador family life, about the way children are raised, about patterned social and political life, and about local belief systems.
