"About the Author - KEVIN PENTON"
The youngest of six, I was born in Lion's Den, Fogo Island, Newfoundland as a Canadian Confederation baby in 1949. Lion's Den is a resettled community near the Town of Fogo. My parents were Charles Penton of Joe Batt's Arm and Hilda Mary Waterman of Deep Bay. Due to Confederation and compulsory schooling, my parents were forced to move to the Town of Fogo when I was five and there I grew up.
As most did in those days on that isolated north-eastern Newfoundland Island, I grew up without the necessities we take for granted today such as inside toilets, running water and electricity.
"Even though I have lived away from Fogo Island for more than four decades and love the place that I live, I have never forgotten my roots, my home. These are my memories"
