This book hardly fits into any classification, perhaps more a folk saga than anything else. It might be the sort of novel that a poet would write, were he a Maritime Canadian with an appreciation for legend and fantasy. A fine diversion from the world of here and now, and a thoroughly enjoyable read. I just stumbled upon this old favorite of mine that I first read about 30 years ago and was immediately swept away once again into that fantastic land, a world inspired by the mythology of the indigenous people of the Canadian maritime region. T G Roberts first caught my attention through his wonderful poetry, notably in a collection titled The Leather Bottle which is probably my most beloved book of poetry (now sadly long out of print). Roberts is largely forgotten today both as novelist and as poet even though the poems of his brother Charles still appear in Canadian high school literature studies.
