----------softcover, about 10w x 8h inches, a Near Fine copy, signed without inscription by George Bellerose, 173 pages, b&w photos, from the rear panel ---"In Facing the Open Sea, three generations of Big Tancook islanders reveal, in distinctive voices, the unique economic and social conditions that have shaped their lives and the ties that hold families and a community together. Like residents of coastal communities throughout Nova Scotia and the Maritimes, these islanders have scratched out a living in tough times and enjoyed an unimagined affluence in fishing's boon times. No Tancooker wants to return to the "good old days" of no electricity, no phones, no cars, and no ferry service to the mainland. But every Tancooker wonders how they can keep some distance from the faster pace of the "main" and the "progress" that has altered the fabric of small communities everywhere"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo
