MACDONALD, Frank. A Forest for Calum : A novel. Sydney, Nova Scotia : Cape Breton University Press, (2005). First Printing. Pp. (4),[5]-383,(1). 8vo, photo-illustrated red and dark grey card covers.

The first novel by the Cape Breton author (b.1945).

"The story is Roddie's. The stage is his guardian and grandfather Calum's. A quiet and stoic man, Calum Gillies and his aging friends illuminate for us the changing world around them: the loss of the coal mines, the labour strife and lean years endured, the religious parochialism that divides families and communities and, most important, a disappearing language. The setting is Cape Breton; the themes of cultural and rural change and decline are universal." - from the rear cover.
