For years the people here lived proudly from the sea, but now its waters are not safe. Waste from industry threatens their very existenceunless, somehow, they can learn a new life. But they will learn nothing without someone to teach them, and their school has no teacher. Here is PAT CONROY'S extraordinary drama based on his own experiencethe true story of a man who gave a year of his life to an island and the new life its people gave him.
