About this Item

Pages are unnumbered. Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. JUVENILE LITERATURE. In this touching story, John, a boy with Down's syndrome living in a small fishing town, is made to think of himself as a hangashore, a Newfoundland term for "an unlucky person deserving pity" or a worthless fellow who lacks the gumption to fish. Although the term in from Newfoundland, Geoff Butler's story about self-respect and acceptance is a testament to the universal human spirit. (Key Words: Fiction, Newfoundland, Canada, Hangashores, Down's Syndrome, Juvenile Literature, Self-Respect, Acceptance, Fishing). Bookseller Inventory # 17757X1

About this title

Synopsis:

Trouble begins in a small Newfoundland fishing outport when a new magistrate arrives from England. A pompous and arrogant man, he expects deference without doing anything to earn it. The magistrate’s attitude is contrasted sharply with that of John, a young man with Downs Syndrome, who measures people by their behaviour, not reputation. It takes a near tragedy at sea to show the magistrate who holds the better set of values.

About the Author:

Geoff Butler grew up in Newfoundland as his minister father travelled the province. He is one of the best known artists in the Atlantic provinces. His work depicts his respect for the hard lives of the people who live there, and for the beauty of his native home.
