The Danger Tree

A non fiction book by

"About the best prose to ever come out of this country, for my money." - ALICE MUNRO

THE DANGER TREE was met with enormous acclaim when it was first published, garnering rave reviews from critics and readers alike. Now in a new edition featuring an introduction by Giller Prize - nominated author Lisa Moore, David Macfarlane's memoir tells the story of his mother's family, the Goodyears of Newfoundland. Weaving together the major events of the twentieth century in Newfoundland - the tuberculosis epidemic, the great seal-hunt disaster, the Confederation debate, and the First World War - the memoir brings to life this storied region with wit, insight, and deep affection. Featuring a multi-generational cast of larger-than-life characters, THE DANGER TREE is brilliant, funny, and profoundly moving, a modern classic about family, history, and the stories we tell.
