A vivid and moving account of the author's childhood in the 1940s and 1950s in the little fishing village of St Monans.

Woven into the fabric of family life, village characters, church and school, he writes of folklore and fishing; fathers and sons; motherly love and the inescapability of childhood influences far on into adult life.
