Harold Andrew Horwood, CM (b. November 2, 1923, St. John's, Newfoundland – d. April 16, 2006, Halifax).
"An unusual new novel by one of Canada's finest writers, this eloquent, subtle chronicle tells the life story of one Newfoundlander who is raised in a small outport. As a boy he lives through the end of an era of sailing ships and fishermen. In the re-creation of this passing world that Horwood knows so well, the author documents the cultural changes and emotional landscape of a boy who grows up and away from the island he loves. He never loses, however, the elemental connection to the land, the sea and the people that shaped him" - from the rear cover.
