BIRD, Will R. Despite the Distance. Toronto: The Ryerson Press, (1961). First Edition. Pp. (6),[1]-280,(2). 8vo, white cloth with gilt lettering to spine.

"Although TristramCrabtree's wife, and furious relatives believed be had deserted tbemand Cu mberland County, Nova Scotia, to sail south for Boston, they would have been even More enraged had they known that Tristram was in fact becoming enamoured of Thora Gidney on the Merry Minx bound for Hull in'Yorkshire. From this point the reader follows the proud, impulsive, strong-willed Tristram inhis wanderings to Carolina, Philadelphia, Halifax, and back to Cumberland. Adventurers is his constant companion. In addition he is surrounded by a v ariety of intriguing and colourful characters—the Reverend (but alcoholic) Meracious Admore, Sleepy Jones the crooked innkeeper, Tim and Priscilla Tooler who prove to be friends in need, Sam Gidney whose heartbreak is mistaken for sullenness, Naomi Lewell who loved not wisely but too well and too often. But throughout his adventures. Tristram's conscience nags im, and the central theme of this book is what happens when he takes the advice ot the Rev. Meracious Admore, 'Get right with the people you have wronged', and returns to Cumberland County. As Tristram, now the peniteiient sinner seekingforgiyeness, makes his pilgrimage around his home district, the reader is given fascinating and sometimes shocking glimpses into the attitudes of supposedly devout Christians. Finally Tristram discovers the path to a peace of mind that has so long eluded him. Master story-telier Will R.Bird wraps his tale in authentic Maritime History, and gives an interesting picture of Halifax and the Cumberland dictrict during the American Revolution. Tritram's story has some basis in iact, and shows why a number of leading Yorkshire families left the Cumberland area for unknown holdings in what is now Ontario. Despite the Distance is the final volume of a trilogy about a group of Yorkshiremen who settled in the Cumberland district of Nova Scotia." - from the dj flaps.
