    Summary:

    Pigeon Inlet is the setting for Ted Russell’s stories, written for radio between 1953 and 1961. Here you will meet not only Uncle Mose, but other characters whose names have become synonymous with traditional outport life: Grampa and Grandma Walcott, Skipper Joe, Aunt Sophy, Jethro Noddy, and—of course—King David.

    Told with a combination of humour and respect and in a manner that captures the essence of folk narrative, these stories stand as a monument to the dignity of the outport Newfoundlander. Edited by Ted’s daughter, Elizabeth Miller, this book is a fine companion for Miller’s biography, Uncle Mose: The Life of Ted Russell.
