Free Wind Home: A Childhood Memoir, 1935-1948
Free Wind Home carries the reader full circle through a childhood rooted in a sleepy Newfoundland outport with nineteenth century traditions, existing in a twentieth century world of war and uncertain politics. It is a visceral tale full of the tangible wonders of discovery and play, the fulfilling simplicity of nature, and the sometimes frightening shifts and changes life holds in store.
