In this exciting tale set in the 1870s, John and Meg Bains and their friend Canso arrive in Nova Scotia to find that Canso's father has died and his schooner seized for debts. Refused credit for a fishing trip by the merchant Hunter, they take the schooner and flee to Tower Rock, Newfoundland, intending to make enough money fishing to repay the debts. But then the law arrives and Canso is jailed. Their only hope is to persuade the women of Tower Rock to catch cod with them. And that is just what happens.
The story ends with Canso's trial and the final showdown with Hunter.
