Cape Breton Books 1-800-565-5140


ELOQUENT, HUMANE, LIFE-AFFIRMING, these stories seize us from the outset and remain with us long after the final page.

All of his short stories—in one magnificent book! Tensions within families; hard work in mines, forest, farms, homes; the lyric beauty of Cape Breton’s past—Alistair MacLeod focuses on the complexities and abiding mysteries at the heart of human relationships.

“We come away...with our own world view intensified, enlarged, enriched.”

—Jane Urquhart
