At the Tide's Turn by Thomas H. Raddall (New Canadian Library N9) front coverSeries One

From the Back Cover:

The stories in this collection capture the flavour and spirit of Nova Scotia and its people from Revolutionary days. By turns grave, rousing, and gay, and all communicating the author’s abiding sense of historical values they reveal the gifts which led the late Lord Tweedsmuir to write of Raddall, “He belongs to the school of Sir Walter Scott, Stevenson, Kipling, and Conrad and he is worthy of that great succession. He has the rare gift of clean spare-limbed narrative. And he has great stories to tell.”
