Book Description
Peter Pickersgill makes pictures. He makes pictures with pen and ink, with oils, with words. Pictures for the eye, for the mind. Pictures for the heart. In this collection of columns, he writes about his life and the life of his island. Some of the best are tictured with anger, an anger that comes from the fearful storms, economic and natural that have battered Newfoundland and Labrador. Some columns are fall-down funny as when he tries to enter the daunting world of breadmaking. Peter Pickersgill makes pictures. He makes pictures with pen and ink, with oils, with words. Pictures for the eye, for the mind. Pictures for the heart. It is the vividness of his pictures that stays fixed in the mind’s eye.

But as lyrical and as vivid as his physical descriptions may be, they are surpassed by his soulful engagement with the people of the land he loves beyond imagining.

In this collection of columns, he writes about his life and the life of his island. They are in short a diary of his life that speaks eloquently of what happened in his time and place.


–From the introduction by Michael Enright.

Well-known CBC Radio broadcaster Peter Pickersgill provides an insightful and introspective look at the world around him. His observations are born from a sense of eternal homesickness, as he divides his days between Salvage, Newfoundland and Gatineau, Quebec.
