about

With brilliant and moving imagery, the author draws on fifty summers of soaking up the rural Maritime experience to tell stories set in free verse and ballad lyrics. The reader is invited to take a "virtual road trip" from New England to the Bay of Fundy in Nova Scotia, Canada, staying a while to enjoy what the little village of Scots Bay and several other tidal bay areas offer to delight the careful observer.

While "visiting," tour an early homestead and trace history in an old graveyard. Expect to talk to Red-tailed Hawks, Deer, and Coyotes, especially if the poetry is read aloud. Hear a Bald Eagle urge his youngsters to "fly high."

Fog will play a big part in one's impressions of Fundy Bay. On foggy days, the author takes the reader to the beach for rock hunting and other treasurers, or paints a picture of loons or crows or gulls emerging from the mist. However, it is when the fog lifts that the beauty of "the Head of the Bay" is revealed as the highest tides in the world make their impact on daily life. Surviving Nor'easters and major hurricanes is only part of the excitement.
