From book jacket:
Found Far and Wide follows Sam Kennedy through the tragedy of the Great Newfoundland Sealing Disaster of 1914, the horrors of WWI, and the dangers of working high steel in Prohibition-era New York. And as Sam journeys through the turbulent first half of the twentieth century, carrying the ghosts of those he’s lost, he clings to his love for a woman he’s only ever seen in a photograph. Here one of Newfoundland’s most celebrated authors offers a story of the irresistible events that define our collective lives and the compelling private power that beckons us home.
