About the Author

George Frederick Clarke (1883-1974) was a man of the St. John River valley and a true romantic. He wanted to be a writer, and a writer he became, against great odds, and created a body of work as full of adventure and romance as his own life. But he himself was as extraordinary as anything he wrote, full of contradictions: a romantic idealist who nearly left his wife and daughters for his lover and their son-a love affair that shocked and polarised his home town of Woodstock, New Brunswick, Canada.
He rose above the scandal by sheer force of character. By the 1960s he was one of the best-known men in New Brunswick, the "great-hearted old man" whom the poet Alden Nowlan knew and loved-and a bridge to a new era that is coming to value both the conservation of human communities and the beauty of the natural world.

Mary Bernard is George Frederick Clarke's granddaughter. She was born in Quebec in 1941. For many years she spent summers at her grandparents' home in Woodstock, NB. She studied at the University of New Brunswick and at Harvard and Cambridge. A writer and photographer, she is the author of two novels, Truth and Consequences and Friends and Lovers.
She is the editor of the George Frederick Clarke Project and ispreparing his books for republication by Chapel Street Editions. She livesin England.
