Genre : Aventure
Edition 1987
Quatrième de couverture

Radio operator James Ferguson was seriously wounded in a bombing mission during World War II. A piece of shrapnel buried in his spine, Ferguson was paralyzed, his brain damaged, and his voice silenced forever. But he never gave up fighting.

For the rest of his life, Ferguson devoted himself to ham radio, tapping out messages to strangers in Canada, a passion no one in his family understood. But when he dies without ever connecting to his son, Ian, his final message will change the boy’s life forever.

Beside the radio, Ian finds his father’s last transmission: a distress call received from the isolated Labrador Peninsula, where the survivor of a lost expedition still cries out for rescue. The authorities dismiss the story as impossible, so Ian must journey to Labrador himself. In the endless frozen landscape, he will risk his life to save another—and prove his father right.

To research The Land God Gave to Cain, author Hammond Innes trekked across rough country, hearing the stories of the men who risked their lives to tame the exotic land. Innes was a master at weaving research, landscape, and heart-pounding action into some of the greatest thrillers of all time.
