Only slight wear to book and dust jacket. ; A bright, solid book. DJ in protective Mylar sleeve, unclipped. ; 9.20 X 6.20 X 1.10 inches; 288 pages; "In these evocative sketches, stories and essays, nature writer Robert Finch explores the people, geography and wildlife of this remote but lovely corner of Canada. Beloved nature writer Robert Finch spent the greater part of a decade travelling around Newfoundland, the remote island "at the edge of America". Between the icy cliffs and the Atlantic Ocean, the lush valleys and barren drifts, he collected intimate stories of birds, moose and foxes - and of the people who share their space. In detailed essays, he evokes a landscape of raw beauty. But while Newfoundland may be a place of unparalleled beauty, its citizens face serious economic hardships, with the fishing industry withered and very little industry to replace it. Finch often steps aside, allowing the Newfoundlanders to tell their stories in their own voices, and allows us to hear the cadence and movement of individuals and their tales. A wide array of characters - fishermen, hunters and hitch-hikers, newcomers and old timers - bring to life an island tucked between provinces, languages and cultures, a land of ancient hardship and stirring beauty."
