How did they do it? How did they manage to survive?
This is a story of survival and living off and from the land in rural Newfoundland in the early 1900's.
It is the story of a man who had a very strong bond with the outdoors and especially a river. His river, the Gander, it can cast a spell on you.
It is one of the few places in the world that you can leave your watch off, get up with the birds and live a lifetime in a day. I know because for 21 years I did exactly that. I had a lodge on that river and lived the life.
This book is not only about survival,the people in he book did that, but they also managed to prosper in the face of hard times.
If you have ever longed for a trip "in country" then get a copy of this book, you won't put it down.
