Named in a moment of anger, raised to endure the tragedy of a people, Blackstrap Hawco was born with little more than a body and spirit that refuse to give up, and the menacing strength of pride.It has always been this way for the Hawco's of Newfoundland, but as the end of the twentieth century nears, the family's bloodlines have grown tainted and confused. Their story - a dazzling swirl of voices and legends spanning poverty, riches, violence and disaster - may be all they have left. But a story this haunting, this powerful, might just be enough to save them all.
