      Really great insight into the life and culture of Newfoundland s seal fishery A quick and easy read, and full of great stories from the author and his friends I d love to hear , as it is often the other side of the argument, from the animal rights activists, that the general public find to be accessible and understandable in the issue of seal harvesting I really liked the book
