    The Opinion of One Left-Coaster.

    I was 2 sentences into the epilogue before I realized it was over and I didn't want it to be. My next thought was "Makes sense to end it there though." As someone who grew up on the other coast but also in a small, primary-industry town (logging in my case) it was very easy to relate to. I loved it.

    Great Big Sea

    Growing up in any small town can be interesting but growing up in a fishing village in Newfoundland is very unique. Alan has written a wonderfully telling memoir of his early life in a fishing village outside of St. John’s Newfoundland. He certainly must have been very athletic if he followed the advice of his elders after every time they wanted to get rid of him or his siblings telling them to run up and down the hill. There are many lovely and hilarious anecdotes in the stories of his life as a Dog from Petty Harbour. A very enjoyable read.

    Where I Belong

    As I was a Townie I know very very little about the fishing in the smaller communities. I found the information very interesting. I could feel the love Allan had for his family and for Newfoundland.
