Eric Colbourne brings us a compilation of stories set in the period from the 1880s to the early 1960s before the precipitous decline of small coastal communities in Newfoundland. The stories are told without nostalgia but with the realism that comes from having grown up in a community and in a province before the age of television, medicare and modern transportation. "In Disappeared, Eric Colbourne takes us on a fascinating journey through the history, folklore, and custom of a Newfoundland island outport. His sweep is broad encompassing chapters on home remedies, schooling, tragedy and adventure, and the battle fronts of the First World War. What unites these pages is a love of place and people and the truly impressive craft of the writing." - Paul Butler, author of Titanic Ashes
