My Grandfather’s Cape Breton (new edition)

  Author:   Clive Doucet    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

This is the timeless story of a young boy and his grandfather. It is a voyage of discovery that starts for both of them when young Clive arrives one summer at his grandfather’s farm in Cape Breton.

Clive, eith all the uncertainty of approaching adolescence, has only the vaguest impression of what a cow looks like and what is expected of him.Under the gentle guidance and wry wit of his Acadian grandfather he learns how to gallop a horse without falling off, how to save the hay crop from from an approaching storm, and how to assist with the birth of a calf.

This is a story of Grand Étang, a humorous, sensuous vibrant place, and of a boy growing up wise one summer in Cape Breton.
