A Giant Man from a Tiny Town

In Cape Breton, Angus MacAskill is the stuff of local legend. Standing 7’9”, he was well known for his great stature and immense strength, but also for his sweet singing voice and kindly manner. Author Tom Ryan brings a deft and gentle touch to this true story of how MacAskill journeyed around the world finding fortune and adventure before his heart led him home. Hoyt’s buoyant and joyfully illustrations of Victorian-era Cape Breton add to the experience.
