John P Christopher offers a textural account of life and work among the recently resettled Inuit people of Whale Cove, Hudson Bay 1962, where he was studying beluga whale population dynamics. He also gives a carefully balanced tale of life aboard a Norwegian/Canadian seal hunter the MV Theron, as it pursues its grim work among the ice floes off Labrador and Newfoundland.

I am just back from Peru. Thanks for writing.
In just a few lines from Molasses Bread and Tea you painted a heartbreaking image that obviously still feels vivid for you.Thanks for sharing, though it's a disturbing little window on a wider world of inflicted pain. Carl

Many thanks for the wonderful stories in Molasses Bread and Tea from your time aboard the M V Theron, which I found most interesting.
