The Arm of Gold is set in Ravanoke on the Bras d'Or Lakes in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. When some affluent American visitors come to Ravanoke for a fishing holiday, their car gets stuck and some local residents help them out. This novel explores the social, cultural and religious issues facing the community in the dynamic 1920s when modernisation reached deep into small Cape Breton communities.

Ralph Connor is the pseudonym of the Reverend Charles W. Gordon (1860-1937), a prolific and very succesful Canadian author and dynamic clergyman who spent most of his life in western Canada.
John Lennox is Professor of English, York University, and a specialist in Canadian Literature. In 2000 he was awarded the Governor-General's International Award in Canadian Studies, which is given annually for outstanding service to scholarship and to the development of Canadian Studies internationally.
