My Grandfather's Cape Breton
by Clive Doucet • 208 pages
A BELOVED CLASSIC MEMOIR—the timeless story of a young boy’s discovery of his grandfather, and his farm in Grand Étang. Encouraged by his grandfather’s gentle guidance and wry wit, he explores his own belonging to this sensuous, vibrant place as he learns to ride a horse, save a crop of hay from an approaching storm, assist with the birth of a calf, and more.
The reader slips easily into the young boy’s summer, filled with the sensitive and lively perceptions of rich Acadian life in Cape Breton Island.
