For seven generations the men of Duncan's family have fished in broad wooden boats off the coast of Newfoundland. But those days are over. The cod have disappeared from the North Atlantic, and the longliners no longer return with rich bounties from the sea. Many fishermen have left to find work. Duncan's father is trying to stay put, in the place where he and his family have lived forever... but time and money are running out. Will the family have to leave their home? Or is there another way--Duncan's way? Striking watercolors by Ian Wallace perfectly capture the rugged beauty of the North Atlantic coast. In equally deft strokes, his words chart the emotional journey of a boy and his family caught in a life crisis.
