Out from the Harbour by Rex Brown
|March 11, 2014||Posted by Michael Wade under Autobiography, Biography, History, Memoir|
Out from the Harbour is a vivid description of life in Tack’s Beach.
The author goes into great detail to describe his beloved Tack’s beach so much so that you feel like you are actually walking on the beach. While the author could be talking about any community in Newfoundland in the 1950’s, he brings us back to reality with the word resettlement.
While the author did resettle, the point is made that there is no place like home where ever we may travel. The only downfall of this book was keeping track of all the characters in the book and remembering how they were or were not related.
I did enjoy the book so much so that I read it in just a few sittings. I would recommend this book to anybody who lived through the 50’s and to any body who wondered what life was like back then.
