A spellbinding evocation of the power of memory and the spirit of place Set in the small farming community of Blomidon on Nova ScotiaÍs Bay of Fundy, The Blomidon Logs starts with tales of Glooscap and a leaky old cabin. Complete with the wild imagination of youth and rumours of a drowned artist, the book moves up the road to a new A-frame cottage and back in time to the generations who preceded the author at Blomidon, providing a rich heritage of farmland, beach, and stories. Taking its title from the logbooks kept by DwyerÍs parents, the collection is about childhood, family, and a time when summer meant freedom and outdoor play. The poems refer to the legends of the First Nations chief/god who once made his home at Blomidon and celebrate the work of farmers, loggers, and their families and predecessors who have made, and somehow still make, a living from the land.

A poetic masterclass from a writer at the height of his craft Kenneth ShermanÍs work has always displayed a vibrant lyricism, so itÍs no surprise that his powerful new collection contains a number of poems with musical moti ...
