REVIEWS and COMMENTS





Nov. 2015........... from the widely acknowledged marine ecologist Carl Safina ( Song for the Blue Ocean, Voyage of the Turtle, Beyond Words) after sending him a short passage from my Molasses Bread and Tea memoir.


 I am just back from Peru. Thanks for writing.
 In just a few lines 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.

..2010...............  from the popular Toronto arts and culture magazine ...........The North Toronto Post

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 enjoyed it immensely, and it certainly seemedwhile back in 1965 comes this little gem as though the rest of the group did as well!

  : back in November 1965 came this gem from CBC's favourite presenter Rawhide:.............

Dear John   .................My favorite of course is the D Day Dodgers because the only other person I'd heard record this was Ewan McColl and now his disc is pretty difficult to come by. My producer, Jack Budgell, also liked your approach to this song and I think will be in touch with you about using it on our Nov 11th (Remembrance Day) programme..................................Sincerely,
