Duncan's Way is highly recommended as a look into the life of the Atlantic Coast fisher families. Duncan's solution is lighthearted and hopeful, and while not necessarily realistic, it gives children across Canada an emotional attachment to a way of life that has been part of the culture of the Atlantic coast for centuries. Excellent picture book for all ages.
