Smith & Weller, Sea Fiction Guide 2343. Includes NormanDuncan's story "The Fruits of Toil" (pp.384-393, from The Way of the Sea), oddly enough chosen as the only entry under "Canada". "The tiller of the s oil sows in peace, and in a yellow, hazy peace, he reaps; he passes his hand over a field, and lo, in good season he gathers a harvest, for the earth rejoices to serve him. The deep is not thus subdued; the toiler of the sea - the Newfoundlander of the upper shore - is born to conflict, ceaseless and deadly, and, in the dawn of all the days, he puts forth anew to wage it, as his father did, and his father's father, and as his children must, and his children's children, to the last of them; nor from day to day can he foresee the issue, nor from season to season foretell the worth of the spoil, which is what chance allows." - p.384.
