St. George is a fishing town of 2,800 people and not a single traffic light. It is situated on the Bay of Fundy in the Canadian province of New Brunswick. The magnificent bay is known for the highest tides on earth, frigid waters, and dramatic skies. The short maritime summers with long evenings are cherished as a time for gathering around bonfires as they have been for generations.
As friends and neighbors shared antidotes about their home, I recognized how the community was in flux, and decided to create a more enduring document to speak to the collective memory of the people and the thriving on the international fishing industries of St. George and New Brunswick.
