***COURTESY OF TWOBEARS BOOKS*** A conteporary look at the people, the communities, the landscape and lifestyle of both the mainland - Labrador - and the island of Newfoundland will have to portray the wide divergence between the past, present and the future. The past is characterised by small isolated communities, their struggle and perseverance in a harsh climate, where fishing was the prime industry. The present is the result of confederation with Canada in 1949, where rapid economic development resulted in dramatic social change - industry and urbanization. The future could be the development of offshore resource industries. But characteristic of the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, whose independence and self-determinaton has been nurtured by years of relative isolation, this province is seen here as a unique culture in a dramatic landscape.
