About this title:

Synopsis:

In Cantwells Way, James E. Candow examines the relationship between people, place and technology at the Cape Spear Lightstation in Newfoundland and Labrador. Modern lighthouses and fog alarms were products of the new understandings of light and sound that emerged from the Scientific Revolution, so lightkeepers and their families were therefore in the vanguard of technological change in their communities. Despite this, they continued to practise traditional activities such as gardening and berry picking, which were part of the informal economy of rural Newfoundland. Life at the Cape Spear Lightstation reflected the underlying duality of Newfoundland society in the period."

About the Author: James E. Candow worked as a historian in Parks Canada s Atlantic Service Centre, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, from 1977 to 2011. His most recent book, The Lookout: A History of Signal Hill (St. John s: Creative Publishing, 2011), was short-listed for the 2012 Atlantic Book Award for historical writing."
