This Canadian classic was first published in 1928. Set in a fishing village on Nova Scotia's south shore, where Day spent much of his youth, this is the story of a young fisherman who comes to claim his small share of an island, and finds himself in a struggle for survival with the island's autrocratic ruler. It is unrelenting in its portrayal of back-breaking work, cunning bitterness and family strife set against the dramatic beauty of the Atlantic.
