Alistair MacLeod's stories focus on the hard lives of Cape Breton fishermen, miners, farmers, and their families, and on the struggles of those who have left in body yet cannot leave in spirit. MacLeod gained a worldwide audience and the esteem of critics on the basis of only fourteen stories published in two books, The Lost Salt Gift of Blood and As Birds Bring Forth the Sun. Over the years, many of these stories have been read or dramatized on the CBC. When Island: The Collected Stories was published, lovers of his work rejoiced to have all of them so readily available. Now, the BTC Audiobooks edition of Island makes many of these wonderful stories available in a unique audiobook anthology. Familiar Canadian actors Gordon Pinsent, Frank Perry, Les Carlson, Cliff LeJeune, and Joseph Rutten narrate and act in selections including MacLeod's very first story, The Boat, the poignant Christmas memoir, To Everything There Is a Season; the poignant The Return; the haunting family legend As Birds Bring Forth the Sun; and the acclaimed The Lost Salt Gift of Blood.
