Description
Information
Davis Campbell, son and brother to Scottish fishermen, is determined to flee as far as possible from the sea. So he ends up in the middle of Saskatchewan - where he marries into the life of a remote prairie farm. It is his descendants whom Charlotte Bacon traces in this novel. One of Davis Campbell's granddaughters ends up in France, where she marries an Anglo-Turkish immigrant, part of yet another exiled family on the move.

Through the intense personal dramas, as the setting and characters shift, Charlotte Bacon looks at the whole pattern of migration; why some are locked in places, some ever travelling, and how people can adapt to change and loss, to new environment and experience.

'Lost Geography' is a triumph, a wonderful, rich protrait of sixty years of an unforgettable family and an evocation of the migrant in all of us.
