Although Walter Carter spent most of his working life in municipal, provincial and federal politics, this is no typical politician's memoir. It begins on tiny Ship Island, Bonavista Bay as a flag is raised on shore to announce the author's birth to his seafaring father. Vividly recreating a sense of life in outport Newfoundland in the 1930s, Carter combines memories of a rooster who forecasts weather and a cannon that fires caplin with the harsh realities of Depression life. Moving on the post-Confederation era, he gives an insider's account of the Smallwood years, takes the reader into the strange world of political campaigns, reveals his own successes and fiascos, and moves on to his experiences as a politician in Ottawa.
