Book Description
The Doryman follows the story of Richard Hanrahan from age nine when he is ripped away from the safety and comfort of the schoolroom to the seasonal shore fishery on Newfoundland's South Coast in the late 1800s. Later, hardening into premature manhood in the Banks fishery, he at once strives to mould himself into the stern shape of his fisherman father, yet longs to escape and find a better life for his own family.

The Doryman is part tribute to a way of life that is gone, part lament for the storm-tossed lives of those who lived on the sea and were at mercy of economic and social powers that chained their dreams fast to the rugged shores of Newfoundland. Above all, it is a compelling tale filled with spirited characters, tragedy and resilience, tidal waves and august gales.
