During the last century, one of the most exciting and dangerous occupations in Newfoundland was pulpwood driving. One of those river loggers was Newfoundland writer Stanley Sparkes, the author of a new lyrical collection of poetry entitled Deadends Dancing in the Wind. Sparkes is passionate about his profession. Whether it is a reflection about a man driving logs, or a snapshot in prose of black bears in the wild, the words convey powerful and lasting images. Sparkes has created a lasting tribute to the men who risked their lives to sustain the logging industry and help to build the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
