Summary

"That Distant Land collects twenty-three stories, interlinked with each other and with the six published "Port William" novels. The stories, arranged in their fictional chronology (from 1888 to almost the present day), become one sustained work, a new novel that spans the entire life and time involved. Included for the first time is a map of Port William and its surroundings along with a genealogy."--BOOK JACKET.
