View all copies of this ISBN edition:

(from the rear cover) Newfoundland is Canada's youngest province confederating with Canada in 1949. Prior to Confederation with Canada, Newfoundland held Dominion status, participating, for example, in drawing up treaties with the United States. The Maritime Archaic Indians appear to have been the earliest settlers while in more recent history the Beothuks, Vikings, French, English and other Europeans came to settle. Newfoundland's history is rich in story and song. Its entry into the twentieth century was dramatic with the establishment of the U.S. military bases on the island. It is a memorable island with more than its share of hardships and tragedy, but blessed somehow, despite the climate, with an abundance of warmth. As a province, Newfoundland encompasses both the island and mainland Labrador which has a story to tell in its own right. This series is designed to introduce to the reader a variety of quality books that attempt to tell the story of Newfoundland and Labrador. (book description provided courtesy of seller keymdia)
