From the Back Cover:

The small world we enter in this book is alive with the sense of wonder and permeated with the great universals. In highly charged, sensuous prose, Ernest Buckler magnifies the rural Nova Scotia of decades ago to reveal a universal human experience deeply rooted in the elements of earth, rock, wind and weather, closely paced to the rhythm of the seasons, of birth, growth and death.

When first published in 1968, this “fictional memoir” was immediately recognized as a definitive pastoral masterpiece, equal to, if not surpassing, Mr. Buckler’s earlier novel, The Mountain and the Valley.
