Blomidon Logs (Paperback) (Deirdre Dwyer)
about this item
Set in the small farming community of Blomidon on Nova Scotia’s Bay of Fundy, The Blomidon Logs starts with the stories of Glooscap and a leaky old cabin. Complete with the wild imagination of youth and rumours of a drowned artist, the book moves up the road to a new A-frame cottage and back in time to the generations who preceded the author at Blomidon, providing a rich heritage of farmland, beach, and stories. Taking its title from the logbooks kept by Dwyer’s parents, the collection is about childhood, family, and a time when summer meant freedom and outdoor play. The poems refer to the legends of First Nations chief/god who once made his home at Blomidon and celebrate the work of farmers, loggers, and their families and predecessors, who have made, and somehow still make, a living from the land.
