The Master of the Sundown Shore
is a book within a book: the story of the elephant seal named Filius, penned by Owen Goronwy, is interwoven with Owen Goronwy's own epic story, as told to William.
Both depict the indomitable will to survive, to thrive against all that Nature hurls in one's path. The struggle of youth to find a place, to prevail - and of old men, whether human or animal, to maintain their place, their position of strength.
The complexities of emotion and revelation that Campbell depicts in this amazing novel reverberate long after the last page is turned.
