Maritime Radical is not just the story of one home-made rebel; it is the story of a stirring and frustrating epoch in Maritime political history.

– Silver Donald Cameron

Here we meet not a country gardener, but a hard-bitten social activist–a committed Communist at a time when being Red was dangerous in Canada–and a radicalism born out of the desperate conditions of the backwoods farmer in rural New Brunswick.

– Irving Abella, Books in Canada
