gilt dec. blind-stamped cloth, gilt dec. spine, pp., x, 196, (3) p. (opinions of the press), corners bumped and worn, wear at spine ends, front hinge starting, Elizabeth Lockerby had just turned twenty-one when the American mackerel fleet came to grief on the shores below her father's farm in Cavendish in October 1851. In this book of verse the most evocative passages in its most ambitious poem, " George and Amanda, A Sketch from Real Life," she provides an extended blank verse account of the "Yankee Gale", the most devestating storm in P.E.I. history. Narrative details familiar from newspaper accounts are present. There is an eerie calm before the storm. There is the gale's caprice: survivors of one wreck haul themselves ashore hand-over-hand along a lifeline,then a giant wave washes the wreck onto dry land, allowing the rest of the crew to walk to safety. The poems tells of Captain James Wixon of Dennis, Massachussetts who comes to Cavendish to retrieve the bodies of his four sons from the wreck of the "Franklin Dexter" only to lose them at sea a second time when the vessel that he used to ship their bodies founders at sea.
