This is the story of a love affair with a people and a place, of the summers Farley Mowat spent sailing the Newfoundland coast with his wife Claire. It is an affectionate, unforgettable portrait of a time, a people, and a place, as well as the indomitable spirit of this island province.
Farley Mowat became a writer in 1949 after spending two years in the
Arctic. He is the bestselling author of thirty-nine books, including
Never Cry Wolf, Owls in the Family, The Dog Who Wouldn't Be, and
The Boat Who Wouldn't Float. He and his wife, Claire, divide their
time between Port Hope and River Bourgeois, Nova Scotia.
