"Work that pays money always been short in this place. Work to be done, though. Auk, lots of that." So the old man tells Innes Corbet, and with Paul Hecht narrating, you smell pipe tobacco, hear the fire crackling. Back in the States, Innes had been caught with a stolen Porsche. It wasn't his first crime, so the authorities deported him to Cape Breton, Canada, where his family came from. Will the rugged countryside and blunt folk show this rebellious teen the way to a better life, or crush him like an egg? There's stark poetry to the land and in this prose, brought vividly to life here with a pitch-perfect narration. B.H.C. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
