Hold On, McGinty!Book - 1997
Where are the fish? Every morning for more than sixty years, Old McGinty has launched his fishing dory, Heart's Content, into the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Newfoundland. Every evening, he returns with a boatload of codfish. Until one day, when there's hardly a nibble. And so begins the cross-country adventure of McGinty and his boat, when he decides to take Heart's Content and move to British Columbia. Their journey by train takes them to Toronto, across the Prairies and over the Rockies, to Canada's Pacific coast. There, McGinty puts his boat into the water and says a prayer of hope for the east coast fish.
