About this title

Synopsis:

Dr. Harry Paddon's memoir is an extensive account of life in Labrador prior to Confederation. As the Grenfell Mission's principal physician for over twenty-five years, Dr. Paddon travelled extensively throughout Labrador by both dog team and boat. Through his journals he fashions a portrait of Labrador society in accord with the traditional rhythms of trapping and fishing, as it was before the onset of industrial development. He also chronicles the demands of northern medicine in response to pervasive threats such as tuberculosis and deficiency diseases, including a moving description of the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918-19.

About the Author:

Ronald Rompkey is University Research Professor, Department of English, Memorial University of Newfoundland. He is the author or editor of eleven books, including three others on Labrador.

Store Description

Greetings from Nexus Books. We are professional book-dealers with many years' experience in the trade. We specialise in children's books, philosophy and theological literature, mystery and adventure fiction, and interesting or scarce books in many other subjects. Specifically, we deal in antiquarian non-fiction, especially in areas such as history, voyages and exploration, military books and theology. We maintain high quality, properly catalogued listings, with an emphasis on offering scarce material in collectable condition. A note about condition: our highest grade for a secondhand/used book is Fine. Our copies in Fine condition can in many cases be catalogued as Very Fine or "As New." We fully describe all significant flaws in a book or dust-jacket, even though it makes a collectable copy of a scarce book seem not as nice as it is; but we get very few returns and believe our customers appreciate our strict grading policy. We are always buying books of the sort catalogued here. We purchase collections of old books, particularly in the fields in which we specialise e.g. philosophy, quality theology, military books, western Canadiana, children's classics, detective mysteries, ghost stories and other genre fiction. If you have books of interest, from a few items to an entire library, please do not hesitate to contact us.
