KIRKUS REVIEW

One suspects something of autobiography in this story of boyhood, of schooling, of a throwing over the traces, and of eventual discovery of basic elements of life in a ""return to nature"" through the simple life. There's a note of sincerity and authenticity in the analysis of youth's reactions -- and I found it as convincing a picture of school life as in any book of recent years. The author wrote a record of life in Labrador entitled True North which was published about three years ago. This is fiction -- with roots in fact.
