Meet the Starrigans, the fabled "little people" who live in the forest at Little Brook Bottom. This is the story of how, a hundred years ago, the Starrigans came from their woodland home to help the people in a small lumber town rescue a missing child. Often hilarious, sometimes heartrending, it's a tale for young and old alike. You'll never believe you're alone in the woods again.

Harold Davis grew up in Colinet, Newfoundland. Years ago he spent a frosty winter working as a logger in Little Brook Bottom. Today he lives not far from there, on the side of the Salmonier River.
