Description-

  • Rockbound is an isolated island, inhabited by two feuding families and governed by a king, Uriah Jung. When David Jung arrives at Rockbound to claim a small portion of the island he inherited, he is faced with the harsh and greed-driven society of the place. David encounters many obstacles, including his feelings for the island's school teacher, and his own reactions to the strange place.

    With a setting inspired by an island off the coast of Nova Scotia, Frank Parker Day's Rockbound is a story about family struggle and greed. First published in 1928, Rockbound was subsequently out-of-print for many years until the story saw a surge of popularity when it was nominated and won the 2005 Canada Reads competition against Oryx and Crake by Margaret Atwood.

About the Author-

  • Born in 1881, Frank Parker Day was an accomplished Canadian athlete and writer. After attending Oxford University on a Rhodes Scholarship, Day returned to Canada to teach English at the University of New Brunswick. During the First World War, Day served as a recruiter for the Canadian Expeditionary Force and, by the end of the war, was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. After Armistice, he returned to academic life, and became the Dean of Freshmen at the Carnegie Institute of Technology until 1926. It was during this time that he published his first book, The Autobiography of a Fisherman. Day is well-known for his novel Rockbound (1928), which won in the Canada Reads competition in 2005. Day died in 1950 at the age of 69.
