The summer people come and go; they see the locals as waitresses and bartenders, fishing guides and picturesque Ojibway selling moccasins at roadside stands. But back beyond the beauty strip of lakefront cottages and beaches, the locals have their own lives.

“Writing that possesses both power and magic, with a jauntiness and good will that whispers between the lines.” — The Globe and Mail

“A dry, witty and self-effacing writer with a keen eye for human character and the natural world.” — Quill and Quire

“A book every short story lover should seek out for its honesty, humour, and startling clarity of its vision.” — The Calgary Herald

About the Author: Before embarking on a life as a full time writer, Jake MacDonald worked as a fishing guide and substitute teacher, living year-round on a floating cabin in a village in Northwestern Ontario. (His house was frozen into a meter and a half of ice in wintertime.)
He has moved to the city and written ten books since, but still returns regularly to the backwoods of the lake country, the place he regards as his true home.

Ordering Tip

If ordering two of the books under 300 pages, either two copies of one book or two separate titles, the shipping is much cheaper if you place two separate orders. Snail Mail is just Canada Postspeak for its regular Large Letter rate.
